Strengthening Families is a national and international initiative that aims to develop and enhance five specific characteristics that help keep families strong and children safe from abuse and neglect – called protective factors.
The framework was developed by the Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP), with funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. The initial goal was to create a national, systematic approach to prevention that would reach large numbers of children long before abuse or neglect occurred. The Protective Factors Framework was designed to assist professionals who work with children and families in promoting the optimal development of all children while protecting vulnerable children from maltreatment.
