Empowering caregivers to shape healthy futures for their children
Parents and other caregivers play a huge role in their children’s lives. Data shows teens name their parents as an influential source of information when it comes to decisions about sex.
Our programs empower parents to improve their communication with the young people in their lives and become more comfortable talking with them about values, relationships, and sex.
We work to build stronger families in San Antonio and Texas by helping youth and parents thrive together.

Families Talking Together
Families Talking Together is an evidence-based, parent-based intervention program focused on improving parent-child communication and parental monitoring, with the goal of delaying sexual initiation and preventing risky sexual behavior among middle-school-aged young people.
Key Conversations, the companion program to Big Decisions, is two interactive parent sessions in which participants gain a better understanding of teen development, the importance of supervision, tips for improved communication, overcoming barriers to talking, and how to build stronger relationships with their children.
Having "The Talk" is hard! That's why we love to find ways to bring parents and caregivers together to share their stories and advice.
