The Institute of Family and Community Impact (IFCI)

IFCI, an initiative connected to OhioGuidestone, believes that by enhancing relationships for children and families, we build stronger and more resilient communities and futures.


Telehealth Tools for Therapy and Behavioral Health Services

We’ve developed new telehealth tools to assist clinicians and other mental health specialists providing remote services during the COVID-19 crisis. These include a free phone tool for behavioral health providers and manuals of CBT interventions for therapists, which are on sale and available for direct download now!

You can purchase the manuals here.


Joy at Home: Activities to Do with Kids at Home During COVID-19

With social distancing the norm and schools shut down due to COVID-19, we wanted to provide caretakers with simple, fun, everyday activities. These Joyful Together activities infuse joy into everyday interactions between caretakers and children. We also wanted to highlight some Joyful activities specifically for dads. So we’re celebrating #JoyAtHomeWithDad Week and asking dads to share their joy!

Like and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to see all the Joyful Together activities as we share them!
