Theme 3: Family, School, & Community

Investigates effective strategies for integrating parent and family engagement into all systems and program services to support family well-being and to promote children’s learning and development. Presentations in this theme should provide ideas for establishing innovative two-generation approaches that address prevalent needs of families across their program that may leverage community partnerships or other funding sources.  A major component of this theme is also conducting a community assessment and identifying areas of need that includes a detailed analysis of homeless and underserved populations.
