|Parental Engagement & Family Services|
Family PlusFamily PLUS (Parents Leading, Uniting, Serving), is a model for Clubs wanting to implement family support activities into their Club's programming. This model introduces Clubs to factors affecting the family unit and methods of collaborating with the community to provide parents and caregivers with resources. There are four components of Family PLUS:
Kinship Care – Kinship care includes providing knowledge and resources to extended family members (grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, foster parents, etc.) who have assumed the role of primary caregiver.
Father Involvement – Our clubs provide support and promotion through programs, activities, training and services to help increase the positive involvement of fathers in the lives of their children.
Economic Opportunity – Focusing on empowering families, the economic opportunity component helps families find and keep jobs, increase earnings, build savings and establish credit.
Outreach Strategies – This component builds the capacity of Clubs to effectively recruit and retain the involvement of new populations of diverse parents and caregivers who are often underserved in Clubs.
