Celebration of Families!

Please join us on October 18th from 5:30-7:30 at the Harmon Park Activity Center.  The event includes fried chicken, table service and drinks and a few remarks and brief activities to celebrate ALL children and their families and promote including kids with special needs into ALL aspects of life.  Each family should bring a side dish to share.  Please invite friends, neighbors, and others who would enjoy celebrating ALL children!

Core Values

1.  Inclusion benefits everyone.  Children considered "typical" can learn much from others with different abilities, backgrounds or other unique circumstances.
2. Education and exposure to differences increases tolerance and acceptance, and eventually celebration of diversity.
3. Family-friendly events promote a culture of healthy family relationships and friendships based on whole-family involvement.

Mission Statement

Mission Statement: Families, Inc. (Families, Included) is an organization that promotes inclusion of all children and their families through celebration, education and networking.  We believe all people, regardless of their life circumstances, have knowledge and perspective unique only to them, and we celebrate this diversity.  We believe that through education, we can learn and grow together.  We believe that we can create communities that work together to overcome personal challenges.  In short, personal differences make stronger communities; and supportive communities make successful individuals.
