Strong Men, Strong Families

 

Overview

The Strong Men, Strong Families program offered by Aboriginal Family Support Services (AFSS), explores ways to strengthen the role of Aboriginal men within their families and community, with a focus on men who interact with children from birth to 12 years of age.

Information sessions and interactive workshops include:

The program provides support, and advocacy, and will work closely with Aboriginal men to assist them in dealing with local services, including resolving matters with Housing South Australia, Centrelink and other local Port Augusta service providers.

AFSS also visits the Port Augusta Prison once a week and works with prisoners on a range of matters including the development of literacy and numeracy skills which builds both prisoners’ skills and confidence.
