Lessons & Products
Experiences at the four sites informed thinking on what tools, approaches, and resources are most helpful to survivors and their children. In particular, invaluable lessons were derived to improve practice beyond the four sites as well as products and materials to assist in such efforts. Gathered on this page are reports, tools, videos, interviews, and other materials and information that reflect these lessons and offer a roadmap that can help communities become aware of how the FCEP principles' promising practices were implemented in the four sites.

The sites learned a great deal about successful strategies and persistent gaps and challenges in this area. The considerations describe approaches that we have found to be effective as well as critical areas in need of new or increased attention.
