10th Annual Strengthening Families Summit

Register Today!

Join us September 22nd at the

Grappone Center in Concord

Grounded in the Strengthening Families Framework, the 10th Annual Summit: The Power of Stories, will extend its lens to an important vehicle for communicating family strength: storytelling. Stories have the power to move, heal, and expand our perspectives. One personal story can influence decision-makers more powerfully than legions of protesters.


We’ll spend the day looking at how stories promote protective factors, explore the collection and dissemination of stories, and consider how the power of stories can be harnessed to strengthen families and build stronger communities.

KEYNOTE: The Story Teller’s True-North: Twin Questions That Get to the Heart of the Matter
