The Family, Academic, & Mental Wellness Program (FAM)

is an extension of the Hartford Care Response Team. As a team, we are working tirelessly toward bridging gaps in urban students' and families' opportunities to access culturally appropriate and accessible interventions. We recognize the struggles the communities under our care face due to interpersonal or community violence. Our role is to provide comprehensive support intervention that bolsters access to essential academic, social-emotional, and basic needs opportunities for every individual to thrive in a supportive and understanding ambiance.

Family Engagement

We advocate for the philosophies of power building between families and educators through family wrap-around service delivery. This involves creating partnerships, relationship building, and shared decision-making that supports families' healing alongside that of their children.
