WELCOME TO UPLIFT FAMILIES!
UPLIFT FAMILIES is my initiative to connect parents with information, resources and programs that help them acquire knowledge and skills to raise loving, responsible, and happy children.
We believe that strong parent-child relationships are the key to providing children with tools and encouragement to make healthy and safe choices in their lives, keeping them free from drugs, alcohol, violence, crime and pornography. This UPLIFT FAMILIES program includes web-based resources, social media experiences, educational materials and periodic conferences on parenting and family issues.
Please enjoy our new website and resource center! We are always eager to hear your comments and feedback, you can always share your thoughts with us by clicking here.
