Support and educational groups meet at the Family Resource Center at various times each week in order to meet the needs of families in our community. Here are the current groups available:

Parent Café

Parent Cafés are a great way for parents and caregivers to have their own conversations about keeping their families strong. Each session connects parents/caregivers to resources they can use in day-to-day family life. This is a parent-led discussion group designed to help parents/caregivers connect and learn strengthening factors to empower them to be the best parent/caregiver to their child. These cafés will be held every Wednesday from 8:30 ’til 9:30 AM at the Family Resource Center.  Parking is available at Clarkesville City Hall.

S.T.A.R. Education and Support Group

Strategic Trauma Abuse Recovery is a specialized training process to help participants move through the healing process and break the chains of trauma. This free 7-week course is held several times a year at the Family Resource Center. Certified Instructor, Marty Wilson, CADC II, BS, PP, will lead this support group which focuses on safety and stabilization, and is not a therapy process group. A free course workbook entitled, “Break Every Stinking Chain!” by Dr. Denice Colson, Phd. is also given to each participant. Class is limited to 12 people.
