Our staff are trained in a variety of programming to support families and youth in our communities. Not only do we work with parents and adults, but we also extend into schools to offer evidence-based programming to grades K-12 throughout Cattaraugus, Chemung, Livingston, and Tioga counties.

The goal of these efforts is to increase protective factors and reduce risk factors. By enhancing communication skills, building trust and openness, youth become stronger and more resilient to things that might otherwise cause danger or conflict.

SHAWNA HAS A SECRET
An interactive bedroom sequence that brings awareness to common things that kids are hiding in their bedrooms, that don’t look concerning but are. During this session, you’ll be timed to find as many “concerning items” as you can. At the end of the session, we’ll run through items you might have missed and explain the concern about these items being hidden in Shawna’s bedroom. This training can be set up for parents, groups of school staff, etc.
