Why Has MFSA Made This Investment?

featured-family-perspectiveWhat makes the Standards unique? They are the first to integrate the 9 Family Support Principles and the research-based, evidence-informed Strengthening Families™: A Protective Factors Framework. The Standards are a tool for:

  • Promoting quality practice for families
  • Developing a shared understanding of the core elements required in quality practice
  • Establishing a shared language across many different kinds of programs
  • Providing a structure for further professionalizing the field
  • Positioning programs for funding and policy change
