Welcome to FAMRichmond.org
Children are a gift. But they don’t come with instructions. As parents, we’re left to figure out how to raise them, care for them, love them. It can be an overwhelming responsibility. But what if we didn’t have to do it alone? FAM was founded by parent education professionals who believe that asking for help is the sign of a good parent, not a bad one. We’re a resource of information, a source of camaraderie, and a helping hand for anyone who wants to be the best father, mother or caregiver they can be.
