Familyhood, formerly known as Familyhood Ministries Inc., was founded by Rebecca Gutwein in 2016 and later re-developed in January 2018 under the operation of Sunshine Gospel Ministries (SGM). Familyhood’s mission is to restore hope in families and renew hurting communities by embracing and embodying God’s design for the family. The vision is to provide practical training, intervention where necessary, and facilitate spaces where parents and children can come together to abound in love, to reconcile and grow as family units. Strong urban families will provide a critical foundation for the Woodlawn neighborhood and ultimately for the broader culture to thrive.
