The Thriving Families Working Group helps give families the knowledge and resources they need to nurture their children. Attention is placed on the family’s critical role in their child’s development.
We seek to ensure that all families possess:
- Parental resilience
- Social connections
- Knowledge of parent and child development
- Concrete support in times of need
- Socially and emotionally competent children
- Nurturing relationships and strong attachment to their children
It is my hope that the Minus 9 to 5 initiative will implore service providers, systems staff and citizens to embrace an approach that shares resources and time to create solutions that empower the people each project is designed to impact. It is the only way to BE the change we want to see.
