We believe that humans were created to thrive within community. Social isolation deeply impacts families, often leading to generational cycles of trauma and family fracturing. We connect isolated families to supportive relationships that foster family strengthening and thriving.

Core Values

We live by these core values at Alongside Families, centering ourselves around these questions:

  • Grace: Am I suspending judgement and seeking to understand?
  • Community: Am I choosing together instead of trying to go it alone?
  • Relationship: Am I emphasizing relationships over transactions?
  • Dignity: Am I empowering and doing-with rather than compelling and doing-for?
  • Gospel-centered: Am I loving my neighbors as Christ loves me?
  • Excellence: Am I rooting my service in best practices and what works?

We seek to do the following:

Engage church partners to lead a movement of the Body of Christ that recruits volunteers to serve families

Train and equip volunteers to champion family preservation by hosting children and walking alongside parents

Maintain lasting relationships between volunteers, families served, and the community
