The Family Engagement Program is a partnership project that promotes family leadership, health equity, social equality and positive parenting. The Family Place sites and Café Dialogues use the evidence-based Strengthening Families approach to build relationships between agencies and the family consumers of the services. The project is a collaborative effort between The Healthy Start Coalition of Flagler & Volusia, Parent Leaders, The Chiles Academy, Circuit 7 Department of Children and Families, Community Partnership for Children, The Early Learning Coalition of Flagler & Volusia, The House Next Door, Stewart-Marchman-Act Behavioral Healthcare, Center for Business Excellence, and the United Way of Flagler and Volusia.  Funding supports achieving health equity through engaging families and providing access to services in a place based model.

Your support is needed to continue these important programs. Please donate today!
