Lotus Bloom Family Resource Center is offering a Family, Friends, and Neighborhood (FFN) Training Program for 4 organizations in January of 2018.
The goal of the project is to build capacity within the FFN informal
caregiver field. Over a six-month period, organizations and parent groups will have the opportunity to learn directly from Lotus Bloom practitioners and experienced parent/caregivers.
Lotus Bloom has ten years’ experience in starting community and neighborhood based programs for families with children 0-5 years old. We use a dual generation approach that is culturally responsive to the diverse demographics of Oakland, California. The work we do is grounded in the Five Protective Factors, Strengthening Families Framework. Participants will learn through hands on activities, interactive training sessions, seminars, and technical assistance.
The project duration is from January 1st to June 30, 2018. Organizations and parent groups who plan to apply should have a minimum of 1 year experience administering parent-child programs.
