The Monticello Area Community Action Agency (MACAA) has been awarded two scholarships for Temple University’s “Strength Based Family Worker” (SFW) train the trainer workshop, to be held this summer.  With this certification our case managers will be able to teach other case managers the SFW class.  It is MACCA’s goal to have all case managers certified as Strength Based Family Workers by next summer.  The SFW process emphasizes prevention; inter-agency collaboration, and a greater role for families in determining services.  MACAA is planning to start classes for staff in the fall and will be offering the program to other agencies interested in strength based family support.  For more info on MACAA please visit our website.
