Our Vision

We are drawn to our work out of a deep, shared commitment to building vibrant and hopeful futures for children. Divorce is a reality in the lives of many children. We understand there is so much more to a divorce than a legal matter, which is why we created Our Family Forward.

Divorces and break ups are difficult, disorienting, painful life events.
