If your family is experiencing difficulty in the following areas:  
  • Obtaining services for your child;
  • Finding social and recreational activities suited for you and your family;

"From the beginning, it was evident that this group was different than any that I had ever worked with.  Every step that was taken was custom tailored to fit my family's unique needs and situation with the emphasis being placed on what was important to us, our traditions, our customs and our culture. We've all heard the saying, "Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach him how to fish and he will eat for a lifetime."  The Livingston County Family Strength Project teaches families how to fish!" - Laura


"The Family Strength Project helped me realize that I was doing things the right way and that I was headed in the right direction.  They made me realize that I really did have it all together and I wanted to keep going!" -Nichole
