Five for Families

Five for Families is a statewide public awareness campaign developed as a universal prevention strategy to increase the understanding of the Protective Factors Framework. Five for Families translates this framework into everyday language for parents, caregivers, friends, neighbors, and community members sharing the message of the 5 essential strengths that keep every family strong. 

The public awareness campaign includes social media and print resources, a website incorporating videos, resources and activities that help families build each of the Five Strengths and a map​ to connect families to Family Resource Centers throughout the state, and a parent curriculum to engage families in exploring their family strengths more deeply.
