New Round of Graduates Celebrate
Ennis Center’s Families Strengthening Families (FSF) program recently celebrated the hard work of participants with a Mexican-themed graduation ceremony. Twenty-four families voluntarily completed 14 weeks of training centered on communication, parenting, and other skills designed to strengthen the family unit. Previously deemed at-risk of separation due to homelessness or other issues, FSF staff worked closely with families in their home and at Ennis Center offices, to teach and encourage stress management, and positive communication to parents and children.
Flint Mayor Dayne Walling graciously attended, greeting guests and delivering a short speech with words of encouragement.
Graduating families received a certificate and a board game to help them continue to strengthen family bonds. In this first year of Ennis Center’s FSF programming, 60 families and over 100 children have been diverted from entering the foster care system.
