CAFF Priorities met: Expanding Community Philanthropy; Engaging Youth and Young People
Boys Town brings a family focused program to Columbus with Common Sense Parenting classes, made possible in part with a $15,000 grant from Columbus Area Future Fund. Common Sense Parenting is a preventative program that strengthens families, empowers parents, and keeps families united and whole.
The 6-week, 12-hour course provides parents new ideas for improving communication with their children. Parents learn about childhood development and gain a better understanding of the complex forces that often get teens into trouble. They practice techniques that help them avoid power struggles and build stronger, more resilient family bonds.
Columbus Area Future Fund sees the benefits brought to our community with the vast knowledge and experience of Boys Town professionals in caring for troubled children and teens.
