We see family as the best model for working together since successful families have:

Commitment – family comes first;

Safety – families meet the needs of each member trust and security;

Appreciation – family members express love often verbally and non-verbally;

Time Together – quantity and quality are present;

Spiritual Wellness – parents model character and values; actions reflect values;

Coping Skills – parents use and model positive strategies to handle pressures;

Communication – family members express who they are and what they need.
