Welcome to Strengthening Families Georgia!Strengthening Families Georgia is a partnership of over fifty agencies and organizations that take the lead on children's issues. The initiative in Georgia is sponsored by the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services, Office of Prevention and Community Support through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Community Based Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act and chaired and administered by the Georgia Association for the Education of Young Children (GAEYC), the state affiliate of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
In Georgia and across the country, family serving organizations are incorporating the Strengthening Families Protective Factors framework into their programs. This framework identifies five protective factors that lower the risk of abuse and neglect and help build family strengths and a supportive environment for children and youth. It also includes specific steps child care providers and other professionals can take to establish those protective factors.
Because you interact with families on a regular basis, you know that caring for a child often means supporting the family as a whole and vice-versa. The ultimate goal of this course is to help you begin a conversation within your programs and in your communities about how you can strengthen families and help children by building protective factors.
ProSolutions Training is proud to partner with these organizations, as well as Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning, to bring you this online course.
