Programs Strengthening Families
Do you ever wish your family could listen more and yell less? Thornwell’s Strengthening Families program can help!
Our free fourteen-week program is designed to help families strengthen their bond through education, enrichment, and community. Strengthening Families seeks to prevent family crises before they happen or assist in the healing process of families that have endured difficult situations. The program is open to all Laurens County (SC) families.
The program serves parents hoping to improve their parenting skills, children with problem behaviors or social struggles, and families that have experienced divorce, job loss, death, or other difficult circumstances.
Families with children ages 6 to 11 gather once a week on Thornwell’s campus to share a complimentary meal together. During the program, adults and children meet in separate groups to learn at their own pace and style. At the end of the session, families reunite to practice and solidify their learning through group activities. Each night, families receive fun and practical take-home gifts!
