FamilyWise received $7,900 from Wells Fargo Foundation Minnesota to incorporate the Active Parenting curriculum throughout its programming. This is the first time FamilyWise has received funding from Wells Fargo Foundation Minnesota for this type of program-related activity.
Active Parenting Publishers, Inc. (APP), was founded in 1980 by Dr. Michael H. Popkin, a former child and family therapist and Coordinator of Child and Family Services for Northside Community Mental Health Centers in Atlanta, Georgia. APP delivers quality, innovative education programs for parents, children and teachers to schools, hospitals, social services organizations, churches and the corporate market.
FamilyWise is a local nonprofit that has been keeping children safe and helping families lead stable, healthy and productive lives since 1976. We educate, empower and enrich families who are struggling with poverty, substance abuse, mental health issues, homelessness and domestic violence. Our programs vary, but the end result is the same: we take complex problems that affect families and work with them to create solutions that will sustain them throughout their lives.
