The FAC aims to strengthen families and communities through the integration of innovative family and community programs, research, teaching and dissemination. Strengths-based models of practice are developed & implemented in all our programs.
Academic teaching & research projects link practice experience and knowledge with emerging national and international themes within the field of family studies.
