Greetings From the National Federation of Families Conference!

JoyattheWhiteHouse500-300x225.jpgNovember 14, 2013 – Washington, DC – Greetings from the annual National Federation of Families conference. Members of our staff as well as Executive Director Dr. Joy Hogge are here learning as much as they can about how family organizations in other states are achieving successful outcomes.

Who Attends the National Federation’s Conference? 
The National Federation conference is attended by 1,000+ families, youth, health care providers, researchers, administrators, policymakers, clinicians and other stakeholders. Youth attendees are generally pre-teens, teens and young adults. It’s a great way to catch up on the latest trends and approaches to helping families and children. And this year we are receiving the Federation of Families Making a Difference Award, so we have an extra special reason to be here!
