Family CT’s work with families is based on the belief that all people, and all families, have strengths. This is a core principle of an empowerment-based family support model currently being taught by the Connecticut Family Development Institute to help families achieve healthy self-reliance and interdependence with their communities. The model acknowledges the “bone-deep longing within each of us for freedom, self-respect, hope, and the chance to make an important contribution to one’s family, community and the world”
Family Centered Services works with families to ensure they are safe and nurturing places where children can succeed.
We envision a world of healthy families, where children grow up to be confident and caring adults and contributing members of their families
We believe all children have the right to live in a safe, nurturing environment, free from violence, abuse, and neglect.
