Amigos Strengthens Families & Communities/Nurturing Parenting Program

Amigos Strengthens Families and Communities is a community-based, culturally and linguistically appropriate program for parents/caregivers of children birth to eleven years old with the ultimate outcome of preventing the occurrence/recurrence of child abuse/neglect. The goals are to strengthen families by providing relevant, effective education and support to encourage an optimal environment for the healthy growth and development of the family. Amigos provides a comprehensive continuum of services, beginning with parenting groups that utilize the Nurturing Parent Program Nurturing Skills for Families EBP curriculum. The curriculum allows flexibility in meeting the specific parenting needs using a proven evidenced based parenting program. Through the Nurturing Skills for Families, parents learn ways to encourage their children’s success through communication, role playing, and life skills. Important core values of the program include empathy, parental self care and alternative discipline methods resulting in successful parenting. Children learn comparable skills at age-appropriate levels through a variety of activities. The program operates year-round at approximately 20 sites, and services are provided either in English or Spanish. The program serves the entire Miami-Dade County with emphasis on the Hispanic/Latino population. Nutritous, culturally appropriate meals are provided for the families at each session so that the family can reinforce the learning of the session.
