FSI Overview The Ins(tute  promotes  a  shi1  in  the  thinking,  funding   and   prac(ce   of   government,   service   systems   and   communi(es   to   ensure   that   our   children   and   families   have   what   they   need   to   achieve   their   highest   poten(al.    

Why a Family Success Institute? The FSI   offers   an   alterna(ve   to   the   last   60   years   of   increasing   investments   in   efforts   to   prevent   or   intercede   in   the   many   symptoms   of   family   distress   that   have   yielded   discouraging   results,   a   deteriora(on   of   child   and   family   well-­‐ being  and  diminished  public  support  and  trust.    

FSI Mission The Ins(tute  will  fully  realize  its  vision  of  Family  Success   when:     •   Children   grow   up   to   become   responsible,   happy,   produc(ve  and  proud  parents.     •  Americans  become  the  best  educated,  healthiest  and   most  compe((ve  workforce  in  the  world.     •   We   invest   in   resources   that   support   success,   reduce   the   need   for   prisons,   welfare   offices   and   homeless   shelters   and   save   taxpayer   money   by   increasing   the   pool   of   contribu(ng   taxpayers   and   finally   controlling   spiraling  costs.  

What is Family Success? Family Success   elevates   the   well-­‐being   of   individuals,   families   and   communi(es.   Resources   are   used   to   strengthen   families   before   and   during   a   crisis.   Family   Success   is   administered   through   networks   of   public   and   private   ins(tu(ons  and  organiza(ons,  and  backed  by  government  philanthropy  and   private  investment.  

The Economic Impact of Family Success •  Since the   1960s,   billions   of   dollars   have   been   spent   in   communi(es   across   America   trying   to   cure  the  many  symptoms  of  family  distress.     •  Resources   have   been   directed   heavily   in   such   areas   as   addic(on   treatment,   incarcera(on,   low   birth   weight,   childhood   obesity,   domes(c   violence   response,  child  abuse  and  neglect,  juvenile  jus(ce,   school   drop-­‐outs,   teen   runaways,   teen   suicide,   homeless  shelters  and  long-­‐term  public  assistance.    

Journeys of Family Success Every family   will   have   the   knowledge,   resources,   skill   and   will   to   successfully   bring   their   children   into   the   world   and   guide   them   on   their   journeys   from   infancy  to  young  adulthood.
