What is Faithful Families?
Mission: Inspiring faith communities to be health champions for individuals, families, and local communities.
Faithful Families Thriving Communities (Faithful Families, previously Faithful Families Eating Smart and Moving More) works directly in faith communities to promote health for individuals, families, and local communities. This practice- tested health promotion intervention is open to all faith and religious traditions.
Faithful Families trains and brings together program facilitators (nutrition and health educators) and Lay Leaders (non-clergy members) to co-deliver the program in faith-based settings. Over the course of the program, program facilitators engage each faith community in healthy eating and physical activity education, chronic disease prevention, environmental changes to support health, and community-wide health initiatives.
