The Institute for Family Website Is Now Live!
Written by Matt Anderson, director, Institute for Family
The Institute for Family is excited to announce that our website is now live. Please visit our site to learn more about the Institute, our team, our partners, and our vision to elevate family well-being. We are just getting started. Stay tuned as we continue to build our foundation.
The Institute for Family believes that family is the foundation for healthy children and strong communities. We are part of a growing movement to advance prevention-based efforts to strengthen families and reduce our overreliance on foster care. We use the power of real, authentic stories to engage, educate, and inspire people to create new opportunities for all families to thrive. You can read our first family stories on the website.
There are a few ways you can start to engage with the Institute for Family. You can subscribe to our email list and stay up to date on our progress. You can follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube. You can also register now for our webinar series, The Unlearning of Child Welfare: A National Conversation to Advance Child and Family Well-Being. We will be talking with leaders in the child welfare and prevention fields, parents who have navigated the child welfare system, and others who are doing the work to create new ways to strengthen families, prevent child welfare involvement, and improve the foster care experience going forward. We also sponsored a Family Stories Film Challenge, and the winning submissions are on the website. These stories simply celebrate the diversity of family and the important role that it plays in our lives, communities, and society.
We are currently developing both podcast and documentary concepts. We will partner with families to tell their real, authentic stories of child welfare and highlight new insights and innovations from the field, building the momentum to advance strategies that strengthen families. In 2021, we will launch an online platform to offer reliable, relatable parent education content that is grounded in research and informed by parents. The education content will be delivered across easily digestible articles, videos, and other interactive formats on our website, helping parents with their most pressing questions and concerns. We look forward to sharing more over the coming months.
We are early in our development and will do a full launch of our platform in early 2021. In the meantime, we welcome the opportunity to hear from you about how we can work together. You can reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
