WE- Empower Family & SIMBA Boys Playgroup

The program employs a series of exercises and activities with a cohort of families  that work together to identify core values that serve to strengthen families and enhance  relationships within the family unit. The program is guided by four intersectional principles:  health, wealth, relationships, and spirituality.


About WE- Empower Family 

WE-EMPOWER Family Coaching is an intensive 10-week process, where up to 10 families make up a cohort and commit to attending and being present for culturally congruent family coaching sessions.  Participating family members partner with CBTC facilitator/coaches to identify goals and acquire tools that will ultimately improve their family dynamics and build capacity to partner with and build community. Family dynamics are the interactions between family members, how they relate to one another and how the family functions as a whole.

What Do CBTC Facilitators/ Coaches Help With?

Coaches help families and individuals identify their various values, wants, needs and goals and helps the cohort members come up with strategies to reach these goals as well as keep them accountable.  Coaches work on leveraging the strengths of cohort members as well as call attention to areas where they have room for improvement to help make forward progress.
