Program Mission: Project FORWARD provides the tools to individuals across the Nassau County and Suffolk communities, to support and enhance healthy communication, enduring relationships, and positive parenting skills (for those with children). All relationships, personal and professional, are addressed supportively. Together, our work creates a brighter future for the individuals we serve.
Project FORWARD offers free relationship, communication, and parenting skill-building workshops to Nassau County and Suffolk County residents ages 18 and up. Participants also receive individualized coaching to help support their goals, along with optional financial and employment stability support/services.
Key community partners delivering Project FORWARD under the leadership of CN Guidance are:
- The Safe Center L.I. (family violence prevention specialists)
- Abilities, Inc., (nonprofit experts in economic stability and job development)
- Stony Brook University (local evaluation team)
- The Nassau County District Attorney’s Office (a public resource well connected to individuals facing challenges who will benefit from this program).
