The Family Institute of Washington
Strengthening families and promoting virtue education.
The Family Institute of Washington was incorporated with the mission of assisting parents in the Washington, DC metro area who are committed to the character education of their children.
We seek to address the needs of parents and teachers in forming the character of children, providing a roadmap for raising strong young adults, thereby fostering united and happy family life.
We hope to bring the best of what is already available on parenting and character formation from myriad sources. We intend to do this in a user-friendly way to make it easier for parents to know how to live family life well and to have greater knowledge and support in raising their children to be virtuous Christian adults.
We sponsor marriage and family conferences, plus our website offers reading materials on marriage and family, resources for virtue education, parent discussion groups, marriage counseling and family support services. .
Given the recent setback for true marriage in our country, we attach some audio and video recordings of excellent presentations on the state of our marriage culture and how to move forward to rebuild it:
