How we empower families

The Family Preservation Program was designed over the last 21 years as a way to create self-reliant families among the poorest of the poor.

It is a family-based development program implemented at the community level and has four core components:

  • • A Family-based Goal Setting Program
  • • Community Leadership Development
  • • Community Education and Development Programs
  • • Family by Family Coaching and Support
