Family Strengthening Program

Our Home/School Liaison Project promotes cultural awareness and appreciation in schools, while advocating for Lao-Hmong parents and students alike. Equally important is the bridging language and cultural barriers while educating parents and students on the nature of American education and their responsibilities and rights. Our program works with at-risk students and their families to redirect their time in a positive manner. This project also assists schools in coordinating and promoting family involvement.

The Home/School Liaison program provides these services to many schools in the Wausau area, post secondary institutions and parochial schools. On occasion we also serve the surrounding school districts in neighboring counties.

Collaboration with school counselors, psychologists, teachers, school administrators, parents and students proved to be very effective. Educational workshops are conducted and sessions of Hmong Language and Culture are also held.
