Team 2 Family Day 2013

This past Sunday, Team II from the Waco campus hosted their Family Day. Staff, youth and 74 family members participated in Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) training on the concepts of group rules.  Youth from each home unit gave presentations on rules such as, Stick Together, No Hurts and Have Fun.  

Chuck Russell, Waco campus administrator, stated “We wanted to provide an easy to remember, easy to use tool that parents could take with them and apply immediately to their families. We ended the day with a pizza meal and fellowship. We were very excited at the number of families that participated.”
