FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES   

A member of the Sunset Family Resource Center, our Family Support Services help hundreds of high-risk families each year, including parents of young people served by the nonprofit as well as teen parents.​ Our Family Support Services promote the five protective factors that lay the groundwork for a healthy family life. 

 

Trained and certified through the San Francisco Family Support Network, our trauma-informed Family Success Coaches (one of whom speaks Mandarin) meet weekly with families in crisis and help them identify needs, brainstorm options, establish parenting goals, and practice positive parent-child interactions. Our services include referrals, advocacy for children in the public school system and juvenile-justice system, research-based parent education workshops, parenting classes, family-bonding outings, and a weekly food pantry. 

Positive Parenting Classes

SYS also offers Triple P Positive Parenting classes to help parents build relationships with their children and encourage positive behavior. Ranked the #1 parenting program in the world by the United Nations, this evidence-based program is used in 20+ countries, coordinated by our Family Success Coaches, and taught by Executive Director Dawn Stueckle twice per year.
