All of us are concerned about the health and safety of our children, especially as they approach their teenage years. These are the years in which they become more independent and begin to make decisions for themselves. These decisions can affect their health, safety, and success as young adults. The Strong African-American Families (SAAF) Program, founded at the University of Georgia, is a seven-session, family-centered program designed to enhance the well-being of African-American families. The program hopes to strengthen parents’/caregivers’ ability to find a balance between firm parenting and showing love, help youth to develop healthy goals for the future and resist peer pressure related to risky behaviors, and support families in enhancing communication and support.  Caregivers and youth who participate in SAAF will enjoy a fun, family-centered program. There is only room for 10 families to sign up and benefit from this wonderful experience. Join EmPoWER Somerset and Middle Earth as they partner up to offer the state’s first SAAF program!
