PARENTS AND FAMILIES ARE
Our organizations promote and support parent and family leadership and ownership of FFP. Together with families we are building a strong house for systems change that can weather storms and create a space for connection with one another.
We see parents and families as the foundation of the house and the architects of its design and the changes they want to see. Our community organizations, schools, and stakeholders bring the resources, supplies, and capacity to build the house--to implement the changes family leaders seek.
