Family Guidance and Outreach is Expanding to the Panhandle!
Family Guidance and Outreach is proud to announce that we are expanding our reach! In addition to serving Lubbock and the surrounding communities - we are now covering Plainview and Amarillo to better serve families in those communities. Our expansion will allow us to provide our resources and services to more families in need and help us achieve our vision of a community without child abuse and neglect.
Family Guidance and Outreach (FGO) is a nonprofit agency based in Lubbock, that is committed to building and empowering healthy families through education and awareness. FGO provides a range of resources and services to families, including free parenting classes and school-based programs aimed at promoting healthy family relationships and preventing child abuse and neglect.
One of the primary resources available at FGO is our free parenting classes, which are designed to provide parents and caregivers with the knowledge and skills they need to raise happy, healthy, and well-adjusted children. Our classes cover a wide range of topics, including child development, positive discipline, effective communication, and stress management. We also offer specialized classes on topics such as child abuse prevention, sudden infant death syndrome, parenting teen drivers, and shaken baby syndrome prevention (and much more).
In addition to our parenting classes, FGO also provides school-based programs aimed at promoting healthy relationships and preventing child abuse and neglect. These programs are delivered in partnership with local schools and are tailored to meet the needs of students at different grade levels. Our programs cover topics such as emotional wellness, anger management, and decision making. They are designed to empower students to make healthy choices and build positive relationships with their peers.
We understand that in-person school based programs may not always be convenient or possible for teachers and educators. That's why we are excited to offer an online database that includes videos and lessons from our school-based programs. This database provides a convenient and accessible way for teachers, counselors, caregivers, and educators to access our programs and resources from anywhere, at any time.
Our online database includes a wide range of materials, from videos of our presentations to lesson plans and educational resources. Whether you are a parent looking for guidance on promoting emotional wellness in your child or a teacher seeking resources on effective communication in the classroom, our online database has something for everyone.
We believe that providing access to our programs and resources in a convenient and accessible way is essential to achieving our vision of a community without child abuse and neglect. By making our materials available online, we can reach more families and educators than ever before, and help ensure that every child has the opportunity to thrive.
If you are a teacher, parent or caregiver in Lubbock, Plainview, or Amarillo, we encourage you to take advantage of the resources available at FGOC. Our free parenting classes and school-based programs are designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to raise happy, healthy, and well-adjusted children. Together, we can work to build strong and resilient families and ensure that every child has the opportunity to thrive.
