The Resilient Children and Families Program (RCFP) strives to mitigate the long-term impacts of adversity for young children and the adults that care for them. Classified as a two-generation approach, RCFP provides training, coaching, and intervention services that support early childhood professionals in promoting children’s social-emotional well-being and alleviating family stress. Partnering with early care and education programs, home visitation and community partners in Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky, RCFP advances best practices that promote resiliency, hope and healing through a robust early childhood community that is responsive to the critical needs of families. If trained appropriately, early childhood professionals can be harnessed to connect families to networks of support and protective factors that in the end will help us achieve our North Star: more resilient families raising children poised to live healthier lives.
