The UVU Stronger Families Project (SFP) is comprised of the collective engaged learning efforts of many different departments, programs, and internships across Utah Valley University. The SFP leverages student engaged learning experiences to help families achieve meaningful and successful lives in a mutually beneficial way. Families participate for free in weekly classes as well as personalized support during home visits to access additional resources as needed. Moreover, the SFP provides workshops focused on specific family-related issues such as finance and health as well as counseling for individuals and couples at no charge to participants. We seek to elevate the family as the fundamental source of happiness and well-being for all individuals in our community.

Our Story

Back in 2009, the UVU Family Science department launched a unique program that addressed how families could identify and build on their strengths and learn new skills from a researched-based curriculum to improve family life and relationships. The program has grown from one site to 5-6 sites across Utah County in partnership with the Alpine School District, servicing about 200 families a year. In addition to classes and home visits, UVU interns in the Masters of Social Work program provide resources such as workshops, therapy, and outreach resources. The Stronger Family Project is facilitated and supervised by UVU faculty in the Family Science and Social Work programs.
