FAMILY AND COMMUNITY WORKING GROUP
Healthy families are at the heart of our churches and civic institutions which have historically provided for the needs of the less fortunate among us. That is why it is so troubling that marriage rates continue to decline, divorce rates are on the rise, and childbirths outside of marriage have also continued to grow. While this trend costs taxpayers over $100 billion annually, the costs in terms of human suffering is immeasurable. Our work at GCO has long focused on how to help families successfully form and remain healthy.
