Best Start for Families

The Best Start for Families program strengthens parent/caregiver and child interactions.

LCFS believes every child and adolescent deserves to be supported in positive development by caregivers and professionals within loving, non-violent families and peaceful communities.

We train parents, children, and facilitators to implement empathy-based interactions into their daily lives. The Best Start for Families curriculum is used in parent/caregiver and child learning groups throughout the community. These groups ensure that children are supported in a positive and loving way.
