Project Family-To-Family

Click here to see our current session schedule.

There are 30 Family-To-Family sessions held weekly in which families learn life skills, such as effective communication, and about HIV/AIDS.

  • The Family-to-Family Program teaches families to use family time in a productive way to strengthen family functioning and ties between members. The program’s goal is to help families build foundations of unity, love and understanding. The program is entirely nonsectarian and can be adapted for families of all types.
  • Each session begins with a wholesome, ½ hour-long meal, giving families time to sit and eat together, opening up the possibility for dialogue within the family.
  • The main idea is that once individuals have a strong foundation from which to build upon, and have a safe and open place to share their troubles, dreams and ideas, the self-worth and well-being will be raised to such a level that they are much better prepared to assume the role of responsible, productive members of the community.
  • Project Rebuild is based on the premise that broken families make for broken communities; that troubled men, women, teens and children born out of a turbulent home life carry baggage with them to work, school and within their neighborhoods. The program works to repair families damaged by external forces by strengthening the internal bond within the family unit.
  • A family can be any group of people who share common goals and are bonded by loving relationships. “Family Home Evening” is a method used by the Family-to-Family Program to present family members with lessons and exercises that stimulate discussion and assist family members to address difficult life issues in a simple and fun manner.
  • Whether “family” is defined as children and grandparents, single parents, same sex parents, aunts, uncles or siblings raising siblings, all are welcome. The program services all races, ages, creeds and ethnicities. No one is turned away from Rebuild’s doors.
  • Family-to-Family is being proposed as a strategy for combating community epidemics by focusing on the Program Concept group rather than on the individual at risk. Strong communities, it has been argued, are the only solutions for the kind of community-wide disruption that creates the conditions in which crime, violence and public health challenges flourish.
  • Project Rebuild – Family-to-Family: “An Idea Whose Time Has Come”

    The long-term benefit of Project Rebuild is to create and sustain a process for re-knitting the social networks that decades of neglect, abandonment, crime and ill health have destroyed. Rebuild aims to treat the “whole family”, not just the symptoms, by imparting on its families a solid sense of self worth and providing them a strong educational foundation from which to build. Rebuild’s core belief is that a union of heart, mind and body is key to eradicating crime, domestic and sexual abuse, addiction and homelessness.
