Uplift Families is a new program and website initiated by Utah's First Lady, Jeanette Herbert. The 3-fold purpose of Uplift Families is to: 1. strengthen parent-child relationships 2. provide tools and resources that improve parenting skills 3. help children make safe and healthy choices

Uplift Families Vision

To promote happiness, prosperity and societal stability through strong families and meaningful parent-child relationships.

Uplift Families Mission

To connect parents to programs, resources and information – both from Uplift Families and partner organizations – that help them acquire the skills necessary to raise loving, responsible children.

Uplift Families believes that strong parent-child relationships are the key to providing children with the tools necessary to make safe and healthy choices in their lives, keeping them free of drugs, alcohol, violence, crime and pornography. The Uplift Families program will include Web-based resources, social media experiences, educational materials, and periodic conferences on the family.

“Our organization believes that to have a strong viable state, we must have strong viable families. We have great concern for the children of Utah and the negative influences they are exposed to. We believe strongly that by getting the message out to parents as to the critical nature of their positive involvement with their children, we can help turn the tide of juvenile problems that we see as a growing threat to our society.” —First Lady Jeanette Herbert
