how we help
The Family Center offers a range of evidence or research-based (or informed) programs that help break cycles of trauma in families. We recognize that creating resilient communities starts in families and families often need a village to support them. We provide seminars targeting specific needs in shorter time frames, groups that offer more intensive information and skills for families (groups in community partner sites also include the option for children), two-generational coaching in homes, safety zones, or facilities, and training for nonprofits, businesses, and systems like courts or jails to advance knowledge and integrate system changes related to ACEs and Trauma Informed Principles.
How we parent our children impacts their health, ability in school, and future success in life. One time, 2.5 - 4 hour seminar helps parents with topic specific needs, like divorce, new parents, and more.
How we parent our children impacts their health, ability in school, and future success in life. Parenting groups empower moms, dads, or other family caregivers to be the best parents possible!
We're changing systems by helping professionals and advocates understand the impact childhood trauma and adverse childhood experiences have on children, families, and communities.
Sometimes parents need help understanding their children and practicing positive parenting skills. Family coaching benefits all family members by using goals specific to your family.
The Patterson Park (Murfreesboro) Positive Parenting… Plus! group has returned to in-person meetings:
- Monday evenings, 5:00pm to 7:00pm, 521 Mercury Blvd.
- Social Distancing and Masks will be required
- Masks will be provided if you don't have one
- Groups are limited to 20 people and for now, only adults can participate. When it’s safer, we’ll welcome back children and provide family meals again.
All other groups and seminars remain virtual (online). We’ll continue to assess safety factors while also working with community partners to get back to in-person sessions as soon as possible.
