dc.description.abstract This paper discusses the issues involved in family support, and describes the family room initiative implemented at Galbraith Elementary school in the 1996-97 school year. A series of three focus groups were held with staff, students, and parents involved in the program. Each group discussed five key areas in the project which included how and why people became involved in the program, examples of parental and community interaction, how the project changed parenting skills, what additional community resources were being utilized, and how the program could improve. The findings from this research indicate that parent advocacy, staff ability to communicate with parents, and a sense of place for parents in the school are enhanced by this program. en
