Project: The purpose of the Family Empowerment Program is to provide services to a segment of the population, parenting children age 12 and younger, that are at-risk for abuse and neglect. These families have risk factors and would benefit from the Nurturing Parenting Program curriculum, but do not meet the qualifiers of the two current county programs offering those services. The two current programs require either Medicaid (CMH program) or CPS Category I, II, or III involvement.
