National Summit on the Standards of Quality for Strengthening Family & Support

October 19-20, 2017

Please join us for this unique opportunity to gather with colleagues from across the country to focus on quality practice with families through the implementation of the nationally-adopted Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening & Support.

Based on the Principles of Family Support Practice and the Strengthening Families Framework and its research-based evidence-informed 5 Protective Factors, they have created a common language across different kinds of Family Strengthening and Family Support programs such as Family Resource Centers, home visiting program, and child development programs. They are used as a tool for planning, providing, and assessing quality practice by public departments, foundations, networks, community-based organizations, and families.
