Caring Families for a Caring World

A family is the microcosm of a community, the smallest component of a society. Being part of one is very integral to our existence as a human being. It is a place which begins with respect for and appreciation of others no matter how old, how young, how capable they are or the choices they make. Family extends to individual’s choices of who they call family.
