#StrongFamilies Challenge

“Nothing in the world could make human life happier than to greatly increase the number of happy couples and families”. David R. Mace 

Families, in all their diverse sizes, patterns, colors and beliefs are the heart and soul of societies. All families have strengths and healthy families are at the core of healthy societies. Frontier District families, show us your strengths! We know that you are spending a considerable amount of time together and although there are challenges, you are building strengths. Show us how you are enhancing your family’s strengths by participating in our #StrongFamilies Challenge weekly, for the next six weeks.

  • Enjoyable time together
