About Strong Families:
The Strong Families Initiative is a nationwide initiative fostered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). It was started to bring attention to the role that fathers have in helping to create a healthy environment for kids and the devastating effects that father absenteeism can have on the life of a child through into adulthood. Healthy family programs focus on both parents and aim to connect men and women with resources that help unify families and improve child outcomes. HUD Strong Families consists of three pillars, including Heath, Education, and Economic Empowerment.
