About this Event

How are the children?

A SWOT Analysis is a familiar business tool. It is useful for understanding an organization’s Strengths & Weaknesses and for identifying its Opportunities & Threats faced. It helps a business carve out a sustainable niche in its market or field.

For family management professionals, educators, and community leaders in service to families and youth, this tool can be an essential asset in producing the best sustainable outcomes for families served by your organization.

Indiana Parenting Institute’s State of the Family Luncheon brings together experts in the fields of health, education, and welfare to provide a “SWOT” overview from a local, state, and national perspective designed to empower the professionals in service to families, youth, and caregivers raising children ages birth to 18 years across generations.
