Strengthening Families Action Council Launched

IMG_0199

Since the launch of Focus on Prevention two years ago, much of our initial work has focused on building a movement to reduce and prevent homelessness. Even as the work for this effort continues, we recently launched the Strengthening Families Action Council on June 1, 2017 to begin laying the foundation for a second movement to strengthen families in our county.

Ultimately this effort will grow to strengthen and support all families in Stanislaus County. Initially we will engage a relatively small number of families in order to learn ways of building effective strategies of prevention that involve all ten sectors. Following what we learn from these early efforts, we will expand to additional families across the county. The first population we will engage through this effort is “individuals who are, or have been engaged in the juvenile and criminal justice systems, their families, and families that have been directly affected by their actions.”

The primary role of this Action Council will be to develop a common agenda and high level action plan for this effort, and support the implementation of the priority strategies across all ten sectors. Action Council participation is open to the public, but members are asked to commit to attending the meetings to ensure continuity and consistency in the planning process. If you are planning on attending the Action Council meeting, we request that you register to ensure adequate seating and meeting materials. In the meantime, if you have any questions or need any additional information, please let us know.
