Family Alliance Mutual Support
The Family Alliance Mutual Support Program was developed as a longstanding support service for parents and caregivers of all backgrounds raising today’s children.
While the concept of mutual self-help and support groups is not new, PFSA developed the Family Alliance Mutual Support Program with modern challenges in mind – while remaining true to the principles and paradigms that have made support groups successful for many years.
The primary goals of the Family Alliance Mutual Support program are to:
- Engage caregivers and promote mutual support programs in communities that are under-served or under-serviced.
- Supplement and strengthen the capacity of existing organizations to promote parent leadership.
- Promote and increase public awareness of mutual self-help benefits and supports.
