Strong Families

About Strong Families

Strong Families is an integrated family support system employing outreach, training, and client engagement strategies which aim to reduce the number of children entering the child welfare system. The project aims to transform a promising existing community collaborative, The Family Leadership Council, into an integrated multi-system safety net to build protective factors for families and prevent child abuse and maltreatment in El Paso.

This initiative was funded by the Children’s Bureau, Administration on Children, Youth and Families, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, under grant #90CA1856.
