Please note that this not an opportunity for funding, but an opportunity for partnership as detailed below.
Our Mission & Vision
Faithful Families' mission is to inspire faith communities to be health champions for individuals, families, and local communities.

Faithful Families believes that communities of faith are important health advocates, particularly in communities affected by health disparities or lacking access to crucial resources. That’s why the program hopes to empower faith communities as they become change-makers in helping their communities thrive – physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Our Approach
Faithful Families recognizes that faith-based organizations offer particular resources that can greatly support their community’s long-term health, particularly in communities that experience the greatest health disparities. The program connects a community’s faith or religious tradition with messages about long-term health at multiple levels of the socioecological model – individual, interpersonal, organizational, and community. Faithful Families trains and brings together facilitators (nutrition and health educators) and Lay Leaders (non-clergy members) to co-deliver the program in faith settings. The program is open to all faith and religious traditions.

Over the course of the program, Faithful Families engages each faith community in:
1) Direct peer education
2) Policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) supports
3) Community engagement
