Strongest Families Program

Strongest Families Institute (SFI) is an award-winning charity. We provide timely, evidence-based services to families, children, youth and adults seeking help to improve mental wellness. SFI’s distance services remove barriers to care.

Our trained coaches provide telephone support at convenient times (morning, afternoon and evening) allowing clients to participate from the privacy and comfort of their homes during a time that best fits their schedule. We provide client-centered care that is customized to meet each of your unique needs. There is no wait to get started, no need to travel nor take time off work or school, and programs are free.
