Fall 2017 Program Offerings from The Family Center

Q. I've attended past Family Center programs and value its educational opportunities that are provided to our community. Can you tell me what is planned for the fall?

A: The Grosse Pointe community has a number of helpful organizations that offer various types of enrichment and educational programs throughout the year. You will have no trouble finding something that fits into your schedule and your interest.

In addition to The Family Center, SOC (Services for Older Citizens), The War Memorial, Grosse Pointe Public Library, Grosse Pointe Public Schools, the Neighborhood Club and many other organizations are where you should begin looking for options.

The Family Center has the following programs scheduled in the upcoming months:

  • Mental Health First Aid Training - this eight-hour training (two four-hour sessions) is intended for adults who are interacting with youth, to detect and respond to mental health issues.
  • Suicide: The Silent Epidemic - the documentary film "Death is NOT the Answer" will be shown. A panel of film members will discuss suicide awareness and answer questions following the film.
  • Aging Parents? Strategies to Remain Conflict-Free - Learn how to resolve conflicts and work together within your family to put the primary focus on the elderly family member(s).
  • Help Your Child Get Ready for Kindergarten - This presentation will help clarify what children need academically, socially & emotionally to be prepared for kindergarten.
  • The College Preparation Process for Parents and Students - Presented by GPPSS counselors, this evening will provide information regarding the college exploration process, online college resources and familiarity with financial aid.
