“Hope” Is Confidence in A Good Plan
The heart of Family Advocates is recognizing that it takes a healthy community to make a healthy person. An individual is responsible for their choices, but it takes a supportive environment for a person to grow, change, and flourish. Our plan is to build healthier communities one family, and one community partner, at a time.
