Thank you for your interest in SharpenFAMILY. This innovative community resource was developed in partnership between Sharpen and United Way of the Piedmont.

United Way of the Piedmont’s new game-changing app, SharpenFAMILY, was created to provide educational tools and resources for foster care families, children and service providers. Created in collaboration with more than 15 agencies specializing in child advocacy and welfare, SharpenFAMILY incorporates documentary films, music and medical research to help individuals find support, resources, hope and healing.

SharpenFAMILY provides a host of life-saving educational tools to teach about:

  • strategies for navigating the foster care system
  • early childhood development
  • connections to resources in the community
  • 8 scientific protective factors for resiliency

Most importantly, SharpenFAMILY engages parents and foster children into a personal dialogue with other peers and specialists, guiding them to the rich resources of the United Way of the Piedmont.
