Empowered Families

Supporting the whole family is key to empowering children to reach their full potential.

Every child deserves to have an opportunity to achieve greatness that expands across a lifetime. The Empowered Families program with Generation One provides a variety of dynamic opportunities for children and families that can enrich each family members livelihood, social and academic success, and a promising chance to prosper and grow. When parents, professionals and the community work together, greatness can be achieved together on a much larger scale.

The Empowered Families Team is committed to children’s growth, and we believe that our programs and services can play a crucial role in their overall progress and success.  

Wrap-around services that are part of the Empowered Families Program:

Family Events:
Family events are held throughout the school year. From Breakfast Bingo and the all-girls Tea Party to our Boots and Bowties for the boys and so much in-between. There is sure to be an event that our team can enjoy with all families! 

‍Parent Opportunities:
Research shows that children listen to their teachers more, focus and learn better when their parents or parents in general volunteer or are involved in their child’s school. We encourage all parents to volunteer at our school. Furthermore, parents have opportunities to expand their horizons within our programs through parent training and continuing education opportunities.   

Teacher Trainings:
The Empowered Families Team provides training for teachers that range from ways teachers can manage child behaviors in the classroom, to understanding child development, to helping children overcome picky eating. The purpose of the training is to empower teachers to holistically serve the children in the classroom. 

The Empowered Families program has incorporated an integrated approach on working with children through a mental health, social emotional and holistic lens. When we wrap our resources around each child and family it helps prepare them for promising opportunities in the future ahead.

Anticipated for the year 2024, a collaboration between the Doctor of Occupational Therapy programs at Texas Women's University and The University of Texas Medical Branch will give rise to a series of transformative Doctoral Capstone Research Projects which will answer the following: 

1.) How improving participation of parents in Early Childhood Schools can impact the wellness of the family and the child.
2.) How brain-based movement activities can improve child temperament, behavior and attention.
3.) How environmental design can impact the way children learn, think, behave and grow.

To help build an empowered and promising foundation and future for children and families by leveraging our resources, academic curriculum and community partners.
