The vision of the Family Institute of Connecticut is to see citizens, institutions and government acknowledge and encourage the vital role of the family and to once again see the Judeo-Christian principles that are articulated in the Declaration of Independence and U. S. Constitution, re-employed in our society and its public policy.
In response to the need for a cultural and moral renewal, our vision foresees:
- A restored consensus that the family consists of people related by marriage, birth or adoption, and which recognizes the vital role of both mother and father in nurturing and supporting children;
- A community committed to racial reconciliation and compassion for all families, especially single-parent and needy families;
- A society committed to helping family, church, synagogue and community meet the needs of its members without undue dependence upon government;
- A culture that recognizes the indisputable link between the sanctity of life at every stage and the dignity of every person;
- A government that weighs the impact on the family of its policies and laws. Linked to this vision we see a need and opportunity for building consensus and progress by focusing upon the broad and unifying goal of strengthening families. We realize that this is not a "quick-fix" effort, but a journey that will require visionary leadership, moral courage, compassionate commitment -- and the blessings of Providence.
We place a strong emphasis on education, and we network with pro-family groups around the state and throughout the nation. Examples include the Connecticut Federation of Catholic School Parents, the Institute for American Values, and other organizations that support better schools and traditional family values.
