Family Living

 What is the Family Living Program?

We work with people in their homes, schools, community meeting rooms in banks and libraries, and other convenient locations. We provide information that people need to solve a problem and build community capacity. We assist community groups with facilitation and strategic planning. Our work ranges from one-time transfer of information, such as by phone or email, to multiple educational efforts that can transform people and their communities.
