Strong and healthy families make for strong and healthy communities!
In order for communities to be strong, vibrant, healthy, and safe, it is of paramount importance to understand that we need building blocks representing these essential aspects.
The impact a family has on every individual’s past, presence and future and therefore the community at large cannot be understated. Our goal is to make every effort to help people understand and get back to the basic understanding that the nucleus family unit is the building blocks of our communities and societies.
At Family Home & Parenting we address the social, individual, and generational challenges families face and create programs that can turn the tide one parent; one child; one family at a time and bring to realization the benefits of having strong, vibrant, healthy, and safe families.

Join us in our mission! We can’t wait to have you in OUR ‘family’!
Discover our programs and how we offer support for individuals and families recovering from life-altering addictive behaviors.
The Family Home & Parenting Christian Recovery Home exists to present the Light of Jesus Christ to those struggling with addiction and their families, enable freedom from addiction and teach the skills necessary for a thriving, Christ-centered family through a structured, biblically-based program of individual and group recovery meetings utilizing Christian peer support specialists, Bible study, the application of Christ-centered 12-step principles, development of spiritual discipline, church attendance and work skills training. We believe the faith-based 12-steps are a practical guide to recovery from all hurts, hangups and habits and therefore require attendance at Celebrate Recovery meetings.
The initial program launch will require an initial investment by private donors of around $500,000 to procure the infrastructure required to execute the program. The program will be sustained through fundraising efforts until the thrift store comes on line and becomes profitable.
