Impact Statement

Last Year’s Accomplishments

 1.  In a competitive grant process, we were selected by Manatee County Government as the lead agency to provide adoption preservation and support services in partnership with 2 other agencies.  The “Chosen Families” program began in October.

 2.  We started the Pathway to Prosperity pilot program to help 5 families end the generational cycle of poverty in 3 years. This program is inspired by Ascend’s Two-Generation model of the Aspen Institute and the initiatives of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County.

3. We began a program for incarcerated teen fathers. Through an 8-week group series, they are learning how to be a part of their children’s lives in a positive, meaningful way.

4. We opened our first fully bilingual Musical Motion class, a parent/preschooler educational play group, at Bayshore Baptist Church. This is our 3rd location for this successful program focused on parent-child bonding and school readiness.

5. Served 1,452 Parents and Children through our continuum of bilingual Parenting Education and Support programs with 95%+ outcome successes for all programs and populations.

 
This Year's Goals 
1.  Expand our services to help address the staggering increase of child removal rates in Manatee County. They increased 257% from 2013 to 2015 (from 164 to 585 children). 673 children were in out of home care in December 2015, the highest in over a decade.

2.  Expand our strategic plan with robust goals through 2019 to meet our communities growing needs to prevent child abuse and empower parents and children to thrive.

3.  Bring on a passionate and skilled Marketing and Development staff member to improve awareness and increase resources that will enable us to serve more families.

4.  Add 4 new board members with targeted skills to enable us to reach our strategic goals.


 

Needs Statement
  1. Financial support to provide services to combat the increase (257% from 2013-2015) in removal rates of children due to child abuse ($2,000.00/family)
  2. Donations for parking lot resurfacing and exterior painting.
  3. Funding for a Marketing and Development Manager to meet 2016 Strategic goals. 
  4. Two experienced Board Members.
  5. Volunteer needed in the office a few hours weekly to provide administrative assistance, such as: data entry, filing, answering phones, etc.
Background Statement

The organization was founded in 1992 by a few caring professionals working in child welfare and education, and a local Exchange Club. Their mission was to provide education and support to at risk families in order to prevent child abuse and neglect. The mission remains unchanged today. They helped 3 families in 1993. In 1996 the organization became a 501 (c) 3 tax exempt corporation.

In 2003, Florida (DCF), based on successful outcomes, asked us to provide the primary parenting services for court assigned Manatee County residents. In 2006, Sarasota County residents were added; these contracts continue.

Family Partnership Center is now one of 80 Child Abuse Prevention Centers nationally (one of 6 in Florida) affiliated with the National Exchange Club (NEC). NEC has a strict accreditation process to ensure compliance with professional standards to maintain a high degree of quality in their programs and business operations. We pay no dues, yet have regular access to the latest research and best practices. Our in-home “Parent Partner Program” is their Evidence-Based “Parent Aide Program” designed to prevent child abuse and neglect. We received the highest rating possible (AAA) in our last accreditation review.

Factors that distinguish our organization:

1. FPC has focused solely on quality parenting education and support for families in our community for 23 years.

2. We have a highly Skilled and trained program team: all have a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree, some with masters including: a substance abuse counselor, a former director of Easter Seals Child Development Center/ licensed special education teacher, a former Head Start teacher/home visiting supervisor, a master’s level psychologist, a Project HEART home school liaison, and a licensed social worker. 43% are bilingual (Spanish)

3. We offer customized programs (not “cookie cutter”) to meet the individual needs of each family and serve them as long as it takes parents to internalize their learning and thereby be able to permanently change inappropriate parenting behaviors. We assess every parent and draw from variety of curriculum to meet the needs each parent enrolled- an approach supported by research as most successful.

4. We offer a continuum of programs to meet the unique needs of each family: weekly in home visitation, weekly support groups, workshops and classes.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

My involvement with Family Partnership Center (FPC) has grown far beyond what I ever imagined it would. I came to the agency through the often-traveled path of membership in the National Exchange Club. This is a nationwide service club that originally helped in the formation of FPC, some 20 years ago. The local Exchange Clubs are business-networking groups and I joined to promote my newly-formed insurance agency in 2010. Each week, a representative from FPC would attend our meetings and inform members of the work and mission of FPC. I was immediately struck by the importance of their work and was happy that our networking group was supporting them financially, albeit in a minor way.

 


I recall very clearly that FPC's Executive Director, at the time quoted that "keeping a child in the foster system costs about $64,000 per year." He went on to remark that "the average stay in the system is about five years." Thus, a clear moral and ethical issue also had a financial component that was impossible to ignore.

I had not drawn the connection between positive parenting and the long term impact for the children and parents in our community. The more I learned about the agency, the more I wanted to know, and I was eventually asked to join the board of FPC. I was honored to be asked, though unsure how much I could contribute. This was also a time of transition for the FPC Board, and several members left while others were recruited. The Executive Director retired, allowing the current incumbent, Katrina Bellemare, to step into his role. Katrina demonstrated a capacity for inclusion that was infectious and the board seemed to follow her lead. We really pulled together as a board, with each member actively participating in many aspects of the agency.

By this time, I had been invited to join the Executive Board and was asked, in late 2013, to take over as President of the agency. Once more, I was honored and wanted to accept, but I was unable to take the position until later in 2014; I had always wanted to hike the Appalachian Trail and 2014 was going to be my year. I had sold my insurance agency and retired, so I started organizing the hike in conjunction with fund-raising for FPC on the back of my efforts. When I was away, the board really stepped up and organized an event for my return. We managed to raise nearly $10,000.

I have been President since October 2014 and look forward to the future. I have a strong, supportive board, an empathetic and committed Executive Director, and an agency that proudly impacts our community in a positive way. FPC is no longer Manatee County's "best-kept secret," and I hope to be able to be part of this wonderful agency and its mission for many years to come.
Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
While the uniqueness of the Family Partnership Center is covered above, permit me to elaborate.

There is no degree in parenting. Babies do not come with instructions.

Parenting is one of the most important things you do. The "family unit" has changed so that moms and MIL's are no longer next door or nearby, in fact may be thousands of miles away. There are more single parents. Some feel that parenting is more difficult than ever before. 

At the Family Partnership Center, one motto is "Parenting, you do not have to do it alone". Our vision is to make parenting education and support accessible and available to all parents. Why do parents not avail themselves today of all parenting resources? Could it be there is a stigma associated with asking for parenting help? "My mom did it so I should be able to do it without help"

Our staff at FPC is amazing. Educated, skilled and dedicated. Changing inappropriate parenting behaviors takes time and skilled educators. We provide both. We are parenting education teachers. Research shows this is the best way to protect children is to improve the skills of the parent.

Children are 25% of our population and 100% of our future. Therefore, should we utilize available resources to be the best parent we can be.

FPC was founded to help parents seeking to become better parents. While we have expanded our programs to address abusive situations, our focus continues to be on Prevention. Research shows that for every $1 invested in prevention, up to $10 in treatment can be avoided.

FPC turns no parent away. FPC programs are free to parents. Total confidentiality is maintained on all clients.

At FPC we believe all parents want to do the best job possible. Whether you are a 75 year old grandparent who did not want to put her grandchild into foster care or a 13 year old parent, we can help.

Programs
Description
Parent Partner Program is an evidence-based in-home parenting education program designed to strengthen families and prevent child maltreatment through weekly sessions with a professional Parenting Educator. This program targets at risk families with children ages 0-12 in need of parenting skills and behavior coaching.  We use emergent, research-based curriculum (integrating a variety of standardized curriculum) that focus on protective factors which enable parents to understand their children and cope with negative child behaviors in a variety of positive, safe ways.
 
The U.S. Advisory Board on Child Abuse and Neglect has identified in home parenting education as the most promising method of preventing child maltreatment.  The program is customized to support the individual’s learning styles, interests, risk factors, and current needs.  A personalized case plan is prepared for each family with targeted outcomes that are constantly monitored and measured.
Budget $232,000
Category Human Services, General/Other Parenting Education
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served Families At-Risk Populations Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Short Term Success

90% of parents completing 20 home visits will increase safe and effective parenting skills and behaviors to reduce their assessed risk factors for child abuse.

A comprehensive risk assessment is completed and used to create a Family Support Plan focusing on protective factors (child safety, problem solving skills, parenting skills, and social supports) to reduce their assessed risks.

Long Term Success This evidence-based program is designed to strengthen families and prevent child abuse.  Research support these long term benefits for families and the community: “Effective parenting education programs have been linked with decreased rates of child abuse and neglect, better physical, cognitive and emotional development in children improved parent-child communication, reduced youth substance abuse, and more effective parental monitoring and discipline.” Small, S. A./ Mather, R. S. 2009

Programs like this will reduce devastating outcomes for children and save our community millions of dollars in treatment. Abused and neglected children often have attachment disorders, social adjustment difficulties and inadequate school readiness skills. As these young victims grow, they are at high risk for teen pregnancy, juvenile crime, gang involvement, substance abuse, school failure and health/mental health problems.  DCF estimates the cost of foster care to be $64,377/child/year.

Program Success Monitoring

The Center, as part of the National Exchange Foundation, has access to effective evaluation methods enabling program staff to exchange information on research and effective teaching tools and materials. Our staff has also participated in government and United Way outcomes training.  

 
Indicators of Program Success: (1) Ongoing Parenting Educator notes documenting parent’s reporting of information learned and demonstration of new skills; (2) parent’s reporting improvement in targeted areas and post test results: Eyberg Child Behavior Index; and (3) Post Program Survey completed by parent providing their written evaluation of what was learned, what environmental changes have occurred, and how they have used what they have learned.
Program Success Examples

Rosalba called the Family Partnership Center out of desperation. Her marriage was shaky and she could barely stand being with her four children.  Screaming and fighting had become their way of life. Rosalba felt trapped, isolated, and suicidal.

 Her Parenting Educator helped her see the importance of setting rules and limits, having routines and logical consequences.  The home environment slowly became peaceful, loving and secure. She began to look forward to spending time with her kids.  No longer feeling alone, she relaxed enough to enjoy being a mom and truly nurture her children.

Simple words spoken by their oldest, Maria, gave testament to this family’s life-altering and successful transformation:  “Mommy, I thought you were a mean mommy because you yelled at me so much.  But your teacher has helped you become a good mommy and I wouldn’t trade you for all the toys in this world!”

Description

Musical Motion is unique class where parents and their preschoolers participate interactively while exploring music, sign and foreign language, as well as ABC’s and 123’s. Sessions of Musical Motion focus on creative activities to build preschoolers’ social skills and enhance brain development. Using puppets, parachutes and scarves, children learn about the Forty Developmental Assets, health, safety, and motor skill development – all while parents share information and tips for effective parenting. For many children this is the first time they are being introduced to a semi-formal structured class (free play, craft, book, and music/motion). The skills learned during this crucial developmental period, as well as the inherent love for literacy and learning will be a foundational cornerstone children will build on for the rest of their academic years and in their own careers.

Classes are offered in several locations throughout the community in English and Spanish.

Short Term Success

90% of parents will develop a better understanding of their children’s behavior and growth development. Parents will also learn and report using new parenting information, strategies and/or skills and help their children gain skills needed for school readiness, literacy and language development.

Long Term Success

Research shows many long-term benefits for this program model: “Toddlers in a program that encouraged interaction and play with their mothers, grew into adults with higher IQs, greater educational attainment and less involvement in violence than kids who did not receive the early stimulation.The most exciting finding was the reduction in violent behavior” said Dr. Susan Walker, the lead researcher and a professor at the University of the West Indies. Dr. Bernard Dreyer, a pediatrics professor at New York University School of Medicine, said “the results show that the benefits of early childhood stimulation can ripple for years – increasing the likelihood of excelling in school and avoiding violence. Children who were stimulated were also 65 percent less likely to be involved in fights and violent crime as adults, and they performed better in math and reading tests.”

Program Success Monitoring

Our outcomes are based on scientific factors that are shown to affect the health, safety, and early development of young children. Outcomes are measured through a combination of subjective assessments, observation, surveys and pre/post-tests.

Program Success Examples At one of our “Musical Motion” groups, Rhonda C. stayed to tell me about her participation in the program. She could not say enough about the impact this musical motion has had on her parenting and her life. Her experience with this program has been, in her own words, "life changing." She was so withdrawn and guarded the first few times she came to group, she barely spoke to me or the parents. We did learn that she has 3 children under the age of 3, the oldest being a very "spirited" boy who has, under his mother’s direction and with this group’s help, learned important social skills and how to settle into the “Musical Motion” routine. He was all over the place the first few times he came to Musical Motion and I can observe how much more consistent Rhonda is with him. She now routinely stays after the group to socialize with the other moms while the children play on the playground. She is no longer isolated and seems to be truly enjoying the supportive network of Musical Motion.
Description
Partners in Education and Support Programs are group-based parenting education sessions where parents are provided with information and participate in discussions on: child development, positive discipline skills, temperament, literacy and bonding activities, and self-care, stress management and communication skills. Parents are given information on special topics such as ADHD, early brain development, etc. Activity groups are tailored for parent’s individual need: some groups are in English, some in Spanish, are weekly, bimonthly or monthly. Some are offered in the daytime, some in the evenings or on Saturday. Parents in recovery, parents who are homeless, teen parents, parents of preschoolers, parents of 10-17 year olds, grandparents, and fathers of preschoolers are all served by our variety of programs which are designed to meet their family schedules and address their specific parenting issues. The core program curricula is researched-based and focuses on protective factors.

Population Served Adults Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) Families
Short Term Success

90% of parents will develop a better understanding of their children's growth and development; as well as increase their knowledge of community resources, reduced isolation, and increase their confidence in their parenting ability (risk factors).

Long Term Success

Group topics correlate to the 6 Protective Factors that research has shown to reduce risk factors for child abuse and neglect. All groups are tailored to the needs of parents with similar interests (teen moms, parents in recovery, Spanish Speaking parents, parents of newborns, parents of children with special needs, etc.). By offering several group formats, we are able to target and address risk factors common to the group and provide education and support to reduce these risks so children are safe and able to reach their full potential.

Program Success Monitoring

Post Program Surveys are completed by parents to provide their written evaluation of what was learned, what environmental changes have occurred, and how they have used what they have learned. Pre/Post Tests and Course Content Tests are also administered in programs offered in a series.

Program Success Examples Jose and Monica Perez, came to our group because their youngest child had been removed from them by the State. Their child had gotten hurt while at her babysitter’s but Jose and Monica did not seek prompt medical attention due to the fact that they did not think she was “that” hurt.

At first, their attitude was one of anger and fear. All they could talk about was how unfair the removal of their child was. They also thought that we were part of the State agency that had “taken” their child. Little by little, step-by-step, Jose and Monica came to see our group as a support group where they could learn and express their thoughts and feelings without being judged. Jose and Monica started participating more. They started joining conversations and discussions, and the rest of the group found their comments helpful. The group itself really appreciated their input and they started seeing them as “good role models.”

Description This is a group parenting education and support program offered to parents recovering from addiction. We work with parents who have been struggling with addiction and with parents who are parenting substance-exposed newborns. Parenting for families struggling with the added stress of addiction and/or early recovery can be overwhelming. Taking care of a substance exposed newborn is also challenging: babies lose their ability to self-regulate their bodies which makes them crankier, inconsolable, and unable to drink formula and many other "symptoms" that require the parent to have special skills and added coping/patience to handle the situation without ending in abuse and/or neglect. Referrals for families misusing/abusing prescription drugs throughout the County are at epidemic proportions. According to DCF, substance abuse is one of the top reasons for child abuse reports and removals.

Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served Adults Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) Families
Short Term Success

90% of parents will increase confidence in parenting ability, (enabling parent to try new things and be in authority) and increased knowledge of child development. (risk factor), while increasing the positive behaviors of one child or decreased challenging behaviors of the child (risk factor).

90% of parents will learn pro-active methods to stay “clean” and learn to deal with their addiction while employing positive coping skills.

Long Term Success

Parents will have an increase in protective factors that research has shown to reduce risk factors for child abuse and neglect. Parents who are able to maintain their sobriety will be equipped to provide a safe nurturing environment for their children and enable them to reach their full potential.

Program Success Monitoring

Parent and Parenting Educator will evaluate each session at its conclusion as to what targeted indicators were learned and the parent’s intent to apply that information before the next scheduled group.

Parenting Educator will keep ongoing notes documenting parent’s reporting of information learned and demonstration of new skills.

Parents complete a Post Program Survey to provide their written evaluation of what was learned, what environmental changes have occurred, and how they have used what they have learned.

Program Success Examples Clare R. came to our agency referred by First Step of Sarasota. She had a history of drug abuse but had been clean for 18 months following her participation in the Mothers and Infants program. She is a single mom of a daughter, Ashley, 2 years old.  She was an abused child and admits that she got involved in drugs to numb the painful memories.  She is convinced that this support group is “her lifeline” and that when she attends meetings every week, it encourages, it makes her accountable and it reminds her how important she is to her child. In her own words, “it puts everything else into perspective.” She says it helps her “remember the reasons that she is remaining clean.” Clare is hungry to learn new parenting tools and is always open and honest in her shortcomings.  Sometimes she cannot wait until her scheduled weekly session and she calls the facilitator to share her challenges or successes with what she is learning! 
Description

Chosen Families is a unique, multi-faceted support program for adoptive families integrating best practices and significant agency collaboration. Family Partnership Center has formally partnered with Family Resources and Family Network on Disabilities Manasota to utilize our community’s existing expertise and provide a continuum of quality adoption preservation and support services. Collectively, Chosen Families’ agencies will provide Service Coordination, Counseling, Parenting Education, Respite Care, and Educational Advocacy to address the vast needs of adoptive parents and children alike. Services are available in the family’s home, in office, and in community groups. Manatee County Government identified the need for this program when researching the overwhelming number of children being returned to foster care and a lack of adequate resources in Manatee County. Family Partnership Center developed the Chosen Families program to address these needs from prevention to treatment.

Collaborations
Preventing child abuse and neglect in at risk families often involves a team of support. With 24 years of credibility, we are frequently asked to lead a team or to be a key player. Some of the providers we work with frequently are: Safe children Coalition (DCF), Habitat for Humanity, Hope Family Services (Domestic Violence), Public Libraries, Manatee County Government, Manatee and Sarasota County Schools, Jewish Children and Families, Manatee Glens (Mental Health), Coalition on Homelessness, Salvation Army, Healthy Start Coalitions, Early Learning Coalitions, Family Resources, and Family Network on Disabilities . 
 
Providers we work less frequently with are: Boys and Girls Club, YMCA, Just for Girls, First Step, and Children First.
 
Collaborations are very helpful when they work for the betterment of the families and the agencies. They often require compromise and even concessions, but they can bring real synergy and effectiveness.

We strongly discourage deficit spending and also prefer to avoid debt. We also are committed to keeping our administrative costs below 13% by utilizing volunteers effectively, and by close adherence to budgetary spending. Also, gifts in kind are continuously solicited.

The goal is to allocate as much revenue directly to programs as possible.

80% of our operating costs are labor related (salaries, benefits, travel, training, and contractors)

We have been most successful in increasing government contracts and securing repeat private source donations.
