Family Strengths Survey

Thank you for sharing your family’s experiences with the Family Strengths Survey. The Family Strengths Survey examined the experiences of families with children in western Pennsylvania from April 2020 through October 2021, including weekly surveys for six months, followed by 12 months of monthly surveys. We are thankful for the details families shared during these 18 months, which allowed us to provide local partners and community organizations with timely information about families’ experiences, needs, and strengths as they shaped pandemic responses.

The last monthly survey ended October 2021, but the impact and lessons learned from these shared experiences continue. Thank you!

Review the topics examined and lessons learned from the 18 months of the Family Strengths Survey.
