Resilient Families Idaho

From helping one survivor at a time to fostering healthy relationships into the next generation.

Resilient Families Idaho initiative is transforming advocacy and counseling practices for families exposed to domestic violence. Traditional services have helped thousands of survivors and children, but not necessarily within the context of non-abusing parents and their children. Yet it is the parent-child relationship which can be the biggest factor in a child’s healthy development.

Resilient Families Idaho’s trained counselors and advocates provide trauma-informed, developmentally sensitive parent-child services to promote resiliency and thriving, life-long healthy relationships.

Resilient Families Idaho’s partners integrate these parent-child practices and services into their overall organizational structure and build bridges in their communities to increase the most comprehensive, child and parent-child centered approach to creating healthy futures.
