Our Focus:

  • Strengthening ALL families.
  • Going where families already are: starting with trusted
    organizations with close neighborhood and cultural ties to
    families (parent networks, child welfare, early care and education,
    community centers, etc.)
  • Measuring results in growth of protective factors, family strengths,
    and leadership development.
