AZ Summit on Volunteerism and Civic Engagement

With a Little Help From My Friends:  Concrete Support in Times of Need

In this session, participants will be introduced to the Strengthening Families Protective Factors Framework with the primary focus on Concrete Supports in Times of Need.   When our basic needs are met, we can put more energy toward contributing to our families, our work and our communities.  Concrete Supports is about gathering resources, creating support networks and making connections with the goal of ensuring community members’ basic needs are met during times of stress and crises.  Through activities and group participation, session attendees will leave with not only tools and ideas to build Concrete Supports, but energy and enthusiasm to strengthen their own families and communities.
