Mission Statement

Strengthening Families by Promoting the Safety, Stability, and Well-being of Children.


FamilyWise is a local nonprofit that helps our community’s most vulnerable children and families. Many of these families come to us with a history of poverty, domestic violence and homelessness. Your volunteering and financial support helps break this cycle of despair and gives them hope for a better future.

Our goal is to promote social change by strengthening families and the community through programs that:

  • Educate parents on skills needed to lead stable lives and provide safe homes for their children.
  • Empower families to achieve self-sufficiency and to advocate for themselves and their children.
  • Enrich the lives of children, youth and families, enabling them to lead healthy, productive family lifestyles.

"Volunteering at FamilyWise opened my eyes to a whole new world where children and families from all walks of life are treated with dignity and respect. It made me feel good to know that I was helping contribute in a meaningful way to the greater good."
