Our Journey

HEARTS for Families™ began in 1997 as the Family Nurturing Center of Georgia.  In 2011, the organization re-branded as a way to offer more expansive program offerings and training to support parents, families and communities at large.

HEARTS for Families™ provides parent education and support, facilitator training for government facilities and organizations, and tools to nurture yourself and others.

We offer partner programs, substance abuse prevention services and training nationwide, with some of our largest and most popular programs currently being facilitated in Georgia, California, Florida and Colorado.  Our programs are varied in intensity level to address a wide-range of needs to support parents/families and build strong communities.

Our Mission:   To strengthen families and those that serve families.

Our Vision includes three tenets:

  • All families will have access to quality parenting education to enhance their quality of life,
  • Children will grow in a nurturing environment with parents active and confident in their role as the first and most important teacher, and
  • Children are to be free of child abuse, child neglect and substance abuse for them to learn and succeed in school and other educational environments.

We’re always just a phone call away.
Our knowledgeable team can help you with anything you need.

From Georgia’s Alcohol and Substance Abuse Prevention Project to individual workshops, HEARTS for Families’ Staff are available to make your prevention plans or training goals a reality.
