Families4Change is a nonprofit organization that seeks to reduce juvenile offenses, problem behaviors, and truancy in school using a family-based program. Since 1992, Families4Change has provided the Family Solutions Program (FSP) as an early intervention for youth and their families. The multiple family group program allows families to work together in structured activities and facilitated discussions to improve communication skills, practice anger control techniques, foster positive parenting skills and good youth decision-making skills, strengthen advocacy for education, engage in community service and much more.
