Strengthening Families: Thinking Outside the Box

On September 20th, 2012, ACF and the Colorado State Department of Health and Human Services co-hosted a Summit entitled, "Strengthening Families: Thinking Outside the Box". Approximately 60 people attended the Summit, which was held in Durango, Colorado. The Summit focused on teen pregnancy and relationship education, responsible fatherhood, domestic violence, and asset building. Facilitators Sandy Naatz, Tyler Osterhaus, Beth Collins, and Jennifer Morganto collaborated to present best practices and considerations for expanding the field in these arenas. Participants received new content, tools, and ideas, for future programming and collaborations.
