This presentation will discuss evidence-based practices, successful partnerships and current programs that help to achieve positive outcomes for a strong Parenting Community. It is vital to strengthen families by building connections to improve safety, permanency and well-being. Developing a supportive and collaborative parenting community will increase protective factors. Enhancing parental resilience, providing an array of social connections, facilitating knowledge of parenting and child development, providing concrete support in times of need and supporting social and emotional competence of children are the key principles that will be highlighted to promote safety and well-being.  

In an effort to address the Adverse Childhood Experiences in our communities, it is necessary to decrease risk factors associated to abuse, neglect and household dysfunction. Research shows that communities which establish caring connections have better overall health, safety and well-being. Identifying and reducing barriers must be addressed with committed community partnerships that work together to gain parental engagement and secure sustainable funding. This presentation will address how this can be accomplished by developing a Parenting Community which requires a collective effort of similar missions, visions and values from all involved.
