Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening & Support Certification Training 

8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.  

56 Main Street, Owego, NY

The nationally-adopted Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening & Support are used by public departments, foundations, networks, community-based organizations, and parents as a tool for planning, providing, and assessing quality practice. 

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 programs, and child development programs,  

This full-day certification training details how the Standards can enhance work with families.  Whether you are setting up a new program or strengthening an existing one, the Standards provide a blueprint for implementing best practice.

Participants from Programs are highly encouraged to come as teams with Executive Directors, Managers, Coordinators, and Direct Service Staff, as each has a key role to play in implementing the Standards effectively.  Participants who complete the full session will receive a certificate from the National Family Support Network that is valid for two years. 

Continental breakfast, coffee, and materials are included. Check-in and continental breakfast will begin at 8:30 am.  The training will begin promptly at 9:00 am and doors will close at that time.  Please plan accordingly as latecomers will not receive certificates. 

Cost: $100 per person includes certification, materials, continental breakfast and lunch. Please register here: before Friday, March 10, 2017. 

**NYS Family Resource Center Network Members** please contact Jackie Spencer directly to register.  Registration fees for OCFS Children and Families Trust Funded program staff will be waived with confirmation from your program manager.
