Be Strong Families is a start up with a track record. Our team and organization grew out of the Strengthening Families Illinois initiative which has been implementing the Strengthening Families ™ Protective Factors approach since 2005 and achieving success in embedding the Protective Factors framework into Illinois’ child welfare system and hundreds of early childhood programs as well as supporting the development of thousands of parent leaders through training and Parent Cafe implementation.
