Because all children deserve
to be happy, healthy and safe
Family Futures believes every child deserves a chance to thrive. It all starts by building strong families – and that’s what our services do. Through parent support, education and prevention-based programming, we are impacting the community now and for years to come.
Our programs and resources are designed to provide a wide range of support for West Michigan parents, teens and families to meet them where they are at.
Service to Children Awards
They’re often the unsung heroes of our community, but each spring we sing their praises. The Service to Children Awards is an opportunity to recognize individuals and community groups whose efforts have significantly helped protect children and strengthen families.
The 2015 Service to Children Awards celebration will be held on Tuesday, April 21, 2015 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the Grand Rapids Downtown Market. To register and view the award recipients click here.

Prevention is Key
The Kids Count Data Book has just been released. In Kent County an alarming 17.3% of kids have been confirmed victims of child abuse or neglect. At Family Futures we prevent this before it occurs by focusing on strengthening families with resources, education and support. To view all of the Kids Count Data click here.
