What makes your family stronger?

Jane Pirsig is the executive director of Aurora Family Service.

Families really do create the future.

I see this everyday in the families that come to Aurora Family Service, in the lives of our caregivers, in my own home.  It is the place we seek comfort, encouragement, joy in the midst of daily trials and triumphs.

We are launching our Family Wellness blog as a place to explore the meaning of “family.” We will consider the challenges families face today and share advice and thoughts. We will hear from the experts as well as those on the front lines of family care. We will share resources, and challenge opinions. And we will have fun!

Each of us comes into this world as tiny, fragile beings who need family to survive. But how do we move beyond physical survival to thriving, caring individuals and strong families? How can our families create a future that embodies our future that embodies our highest hopes and most ambitious dreams?

How do we start creating the future?

Aurora Family Service helps families overcome challenges, changes and crisis to live well again. We achieve stability and strength for families through counseling, parenting, elder care, financial, career, health and community services.  For more information, visit our website, follow us on Facebook, or call 1-414-342-4560.
