GARFIELD, N.J.– The Strengthening Families Program is coming to Garfield in July.
The free program is designed to help families with children ages 10-14 develop skills to help children with refusal skills, knowing boundaries, and to be substance free, organizers noted. There will also be parent workshops and interactive youth activities.
Strengthening Families is a collaboration between the Garfield YMCA and The Center for Alcohol and Drug Resources, a program of Children's Aid and Services.
There are seven weekly sessions beginning July 6 from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Garfield YMCA (second floor), located at 70 Outwater Lane.
Attendees will also receive a free family dinner and a gift card after completion of the program.
Babysitting will be offered for children ages 2 and up.
Registration is required. Email Stephanie Drag by July 5 to sign up.
