Family Stability

What hypocrisy it is to talk of saving the new generation to make it a generation of hope
—while consigning it to unemployment and provoking it to violent alternatives

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The goal of the family stability efforts is to engage in strategies that build, maintain and develop caring and loving families. We will do this by:

  • Being better parents, both social and biological, ourselves
  • Ensuring that resources necessary for good parenting are available
  • Working with parents/guardians and progressive professionals in the field of family life to develop instructional materials on parenting
  • Establishing mentoring programs and rites of passage programs
  • Recommending best practices manuals on parenting, marriage, and how to best care for and protect the most vulnerable among us: the young, the seasoned and the disabled.
  • Monitoring and encouraging improvement upon legislation/policies that will address how foster care children and their caretakers are treated
  • Establishing bridges between generations upon which the transference of wisdom, knowledge and experience may safely cross.
