In a Family Solution Finder Learning Centers, Level Three the learning centers will educate the community agencies, local provider staff and faith organizations.  This community resource will have the Pathfinder Certificate of Completion Seminar in printed books, On-demand eLearning and available for on site presentations within their local community. 

Family Solution Finder Learning Centers Level III

The Family Solution Finder Learning Centers is a structure, with a strategy to provide the process of education  through seminars for  family members, community agencies, local provider staff and faith organizations.  All the content and material is provided. 

The Community Pathfinder Certificate of Completion Seminar, is designed to educate the local community about the family members journey living with substance use disorders. 

Certificate of Completion

The twelve key issues are learned by both Family members, community agencies and provider services staff.   The certificate allows the recognition of completion.  With it comes an expectation that learning is a part of empowerment, it is a sign of strength and pride in ones self.  An expectation is that more can be done, better. 

Community Mapping, Define Your Community

We will meet the family in their moment of  stress and challenges. This is done by identifying the place where  families are most likely to turn to for assistance, and have those groups in the  Community take the Pathfinder Certificate of Completion Seminar.  To do this , we need to map the family members journey within our local community. Where community meets the family, educate both.  Using Community Mapping we can take an inventory of the family journey:  Coach to school guidance counselor, police to treatment center, Emergency Room to Mental Health Center, Peer to Peer to Quick Response Team, Courts to Foster Care. Where the family members  go, we will go,  and we will educate.  These are the stakeholders, and this is where the family meets the community.   A  Level III Family Solution Finder Learning Centers has all the materials needed to educate both  community and family. 

Buildling a culture of Sharedness 

Sharing kills stigma, and knowledge reduces fear.  The Family member coping tools becomes future outcome improvements.   We recycle our love and caring for each other when we show up to make a difference. 

The Family Solution Finder Learning Centers using the Community Pathfinder Certificate of Completion Seminar is the strategy, structure and process every county needs in order to provide Hope, Hugs and Sharing in the Family's Love.  

Books For Community Stakeholders

The goal is to educate the stakeholder, their staff and those they come in contact with by using the book titled for their type of work.  The stakeholder will read the book, share with with others, then when in contact with a family living with susbstance use disorders, share the book with that family members. For example: Coaches would receive the From Coach to Family Table. This will give them the Pathfinder Certificate of Completion 12 Core Competency Issue Seminars and Family 3-D's Skill Set. Also, the eLearning Program. 

This is how we assist the  community to meet the family where they are, in their time and space, with a significant resource. It is a win-win for everyone

Use Community Mapping to find these stakeholders.

Meet with the stakeholder, Explain the Family Solution Finder Community Collaborative.
