Family SkillBuilders strengthens families through customized relationally-based parenting support. We empower parents to enhance their skills by using culturally responsive, trauma-informed, and resilience-building interventions.
Bottom Line for Portland
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) lead to poorer outcomes later in life. Children with higher ACE scores are more likely to suffer from disease, have poor academic achievement, and struggle with substance use. With a higher ACE score, and without supportive adults (like a parent, teacher, or Family SkillBuilder) these children will suffer from toxic stress.
Family SkillBuilders decreases ACE scores for children by empowering parents with the skills they need to keep their children safe and healthy- preventing ACEs before they happen.
“FSB helped me to remember that I am enough. I'm doing the best I can with my kiddo and the mistakes I have made I have learned from… She just reminded me that I have so many tools in my toolbox I just gotta take care of myself so that I can be in a place to be able to use them. ” -FSB Parent
“To WANT to help others in any shape or form and not just cause you are doing a job is so rare and I'm glad that I got to experience that type of dedication by an agency again.” -FSB Parent
