School-Based Family Support Programs: An Excellent Vehicle for Family Wellness Promotion and Abuse Efforts (Workshop 140)
School-based family support programs represent a new "gateway to prevention" and a significant change in the role of public schools in our community. This workshop illustrates the accomplishments of school-based family resource centers housed in elementary schools. The discussion elaborates the ways school-based programs have developed a cadre of community partners to carry out their intent to bring services and supports to families in neighborhoods where services often are difficult to access or scarce.
