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.
