Family Matters partners with youth, families, and communities to cultivate a way of living in the world that develops strong relationships, meaningful communication, and safe environments for courageous social change.

We seek to build an equitable society for all.

Family Matters’ Walk and Roll-A-Thon raises critical funds to support:

  • The Family Matters School, a K-3 cooperative microschool with a focus on experiential learning
  • Respectful Communities, a Principles of Leadership training course
  • Project RISE, a teen job-skills training and leadership development program
  • Partners in Learning, a one-to-one after-school tutoring/mentoring program
  • Community Engagement, a partnership with families and members of the community involved in ongoing activities and initiatives beyond those participating in daily programming

    Closing the Employment Gap and Cultivating Leadership: Project RISE The Project RISE teen job skills training and leadership development program began when a group of Family Matters teens spoke out about the difficulties that they and their peers had finding after-school jobs. What started as a summer internship curriculum has expanded into a year-round initiative for teens ages 14–18 to build job-readiness skills and to practice those skills while earning a stipend through jobs at local businesses.

  20. DeLong Doers

    I am walking in my 32nd Annual Walkathon for Family Matters on October 2nd. I have walked in sun and rain and winds and once, in snow. Each Walk-A-Thon has been a joy-filled day of community and celebration. Highlights for me each year are walking the route with friends old and new, partaking in the delicious picnic, refashioning the annual t shirt, and having the opportunity to spend time with people I love while raising money to create an equitable society. Thank you more than words could say for your support of the walk and of me. I am forever grateful. Kim
