Mission of PF: Project FORWARD provides the tools to individuals across the Nassau and Western Suffolk County 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 Western 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.
