Supporting Families Through Family Caf├ęs

Family Café training is a key focus of the Family Engagement Collaborative.  Inspired by Be Strong Families’ Parent Café model, the Family Café has become part of the school culture at Cleveland, Edison and Kiser neighborhood school centers in the Dayton Public Schools.  Family Cafés are also occurring at Catholic schools and early learning programs throughout the region.  The Family Engagement Collaborative conducts Family Café training and offers start-up funding for programs interested in implementing a Family Café.

Family Café themes include:

  • Taking care of yourself: Keeping families strong, using support systems and asking for help
  • Being a strong parent
  • Building strong relationships with your children: both individually and as a family
