Families share a powerful connection with their community. To foster this connection, we believe:
Participation in shared experiences helps people to feel understood and valued. A sense of belonging is crucial to a person’s well-being.
Families and community members deserve the opportunity to relax and enjoy each other’s company.
Inclusion is the cornerstone of community. We value diversity in its many forms, because we all have something to learn from each other.
Activities should be driven by the needs and wants of the families. Creating Landscapes for Families is about ownership rather than membership.
Grassroots organization is a powerful tool for change.
Programs should use materials and resources that are readily available in the community.
