Calling youth and young adults ages 14-22!
Formed Families Forward hosts Stronger Together peer-to-peer support groups.
Our 2015-16 Stronger Together groups ran twice monthly October 2015 through May 2016.
We believe that youth and young adults really are stronger when they share their experiences and work together to improve their own lives and the systems that are supposed to help youth and families.
The group is designed for teens and young adults who have lived experiences in one or more service systems such as:
- Social services (foster care, child welfare, family services)
- Special education (learning or emotional disability or other condition)
- Mental health services
- Substance use treatment/recovery
We are planning for our 2016-17 groups, held twice monthly in Fairfax city. Groups are facilitated by professional clinicians.
Parents, caregivers and guardians have their own group meeting at the same time in the same building.
We thank YouthMOVE Virginia and Fairfax County’s System of Care for their support.
