The family is the basic unit of society, so when families are broken, the result is potential destruction to the communities in which they reside, as well as to individual family members. Be Strong International has a vision to transform communities by enriching individuals and families with effective relationship tools. They help today’s youth via such highly effective programs as Project HOPE (Healthy Outcomes through Prevention Educations); the Be Strong After School Club, GEMS (Girls Empowerment Mastery Sessions); and Strong Money Mentality — all of which help avoid risky behaviors and achieve positive outcomes. Their Raising The B.A.R. Parent Alliance program teaches parents and caregivers evidence-based strategies that support the healthy development of children. Marriage Matters provides a curriculum that aims to empower married couples to build and maintain a healthy and lasting marriage. The entire community benefits from Be Strong @ The Table, which is a unique relationship-building experience offered through a roundtable dining activity focused on increasing social empathy and encouraging healthy dialogue despite differences. Be Strong International also partners with other institutions to offer food drives, toy drives and back-to-school supplies to the community. Be Strong is helping Miami-Dade and Broward be just that: stronger together;
