Who we are

Our Vision, Mission & Goals:


All children deserve to grow up in a safe, loving family and strong communities are built on stable families. Unfortunately, the rates of divorce and fatherlessness in our culture keep rising leaving children without healthy adults to meet their needs and reach their full potential. This is a wide-spread, complex issue that requires a collective response.

  • Our Vision: Organizations and churches working together so that every child has a family that loves them

  • Our Mission: Protecting kids and strengthening families in the Greater Sacramento Area

  • Our Goals: 

    • CONNECT families with resources

    • UNITE local organizations serving kids & families

    • MOBILIZE the community

    • EQUIP individuals & churches to get involved​

We are not all called to bring children into our homes but everyone can make a difference through Prevention, Intervention, and Support

Families:  Providing resources to strength families is our passion! We want to lighten the load on foster, adoptive, and biological families who would benefit from support services but don't know where to look. Our Family Resource pages are packed full of great classes, tools, conferences, and parenting tips.
