Residents in the Vader area are still able to register for the Strengthening Families Program, which starts Jan. 14 and is sponsored by The Castle Rock CARE Coalition.
Organizers have said, while the program has been historically held in Castle Rock, the attendance of Vader students at Castle Rock Elementary School has shown a need to bring the program to Lewis County, as well.
Available for parents and caregivers of children from preschool to sixth grade, the program is designed to help families deal with the many stressor’s involved in raising children, and in everyday life.
Strengthening Families Program is a free, 14-week program and topics covered will include family communication, setting limits, problem solving and family meetings, among others
A family meal will be provided each week, and participants will also enter a weekly drawing for a family-related gift. Childcare will also be provided upon request.
Strengthening Families Program is scheduled for every Tuesday starting Jan. 14 at the Vader Assembly of God (302 6th St.) from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. If you would like to register for the program and/or have questions, please contact Program Coordinator Dianne Swanson at (360) 636-2565 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Strengthening Families Program is a function of the State Department of Health and Social Services and has no religious or private affiliation.
