September 28, 2017 – MERIDIAN, ID – $5,000 from CapEd Credit Union was recently granted to Family Advocates and their Family Strengthening Program. Family strengthening volunteers show us bravery by working with families to create strong networks and healthy habits through classes, activities, and more. These programs engage children and parents in building their Five Protective Factors and solidifying strong and healthy families. Incentives like diapers, wipes, food, and clothing is earned by families for attending educational classes like financial literacy, nutrition, and childhood developmental milestones. Parents can also earn incentives by attending support groups that promote a sense of community and decrease isolation—a key factor in domestic violence.
