Community Programs

Promise South Salt Lake recognizes the importance of family and community engagement as essential to achieving long-term, sustainable and improved relationships, processes, and outcomes. These programs build individual and community capacity by increasing knowledge and self-sufficiency through a range of activities. 

Our family engagement efforts include families in activities and programs that promote youth development, learning, and wellness; including planning, development, and evaluation. We engage families as essential partners while providing services that encourage youth's learning and development, nurture positive relationships between families and staff, and support families. When families are engaged, partnerships are created that have a common focus – helping youth grow and thrive. Family engagement is a shared responsibility of all those who want youth to succeed in school and in life to work together to prepare youth for success. 

In our community engagement efforts we work collaboratively with and through groups of people affiliated by geographic proximity, special interest, or similar situations to address issues affecting the well-being of those people to bring about environmental and behavioral changes that will improve the health of the community and its members. This work involves partnerships and coalitions that help mobilize resources and influence systems, change relationships among partners, and serve as catalysts for changing policies, programs, and practices.

Family Liaisons are frontline staff who work with families from diverse backgrounds and have a close understanding of the community they serve. This trusting relationship enables them to serve as a liaison between social services and the community to facilitate access to resources and improve the quality and cultural competence of service delivery. They build individual and community capacity by increasing knowledge and self-sufficiency through a range of activities such as outreach, community education, and advocacy. Family Liaisons are available to support families and youth to thrive in South Salt Lake and can help facilitate access to various community resources and programs.
