The vision for this work is a parent-driven and family-oriented ministry that seeks to engage parents in all family systems. The goal is to help parents play a more positive role in the lives of their families through support, resources, education, and training. The long-term goal of Fountain of Life Ministries is to strengthen and rebuild the nuclear family as well as co-parenting families. To change the culture of parents in America, change the perception of men and women by society from negative to positive and increase the influence and participation of fathers in their children’s lives.
