Our Goal

Parenting can be challenging for a variety of reason and whether you have one child or more. The culturally popular approach claims that it takes people plus parents to raise a whole child. This often creates hurdles rather than helps for parents - particularly parents with teens. These obstructions challenge parents who want to be - and should be - their children's primary advocate and teacher. 

Fortifying Families of Faith was formed to help parents connect to their teens. We are in the business of helping families stay connected by offering resources that are practical and time honored, Catholic in perspective and invaluable to all families.

"We found the workshop beneficial to parents in offering them encouragement, support and practical advice on raising teens. A great advantage of the workshop was that is was offered in both English and Spanish and was tailored to meet the needs of our diocese."
