Our Families, Our Future

Our Families, Our Future is a portrait of the American family in crisis. The "traditional" American family has changed dramatically over the past 30 years, as half of marriages now end in divorce and 70 percent of the children spend part of their childhood in a single-parent household.

Yet Our Families, Our Future does not sound a death knell for the American family. Instead, it highlights successful programs across the country that are seeking to address the multiple stresses of family life. Indeed, this documentary puts a human face on the problems facing the American family and examines programs that are part of the burgeoning "family support" movement, which offers comprehensive services for both parents and children.

By highlighting successful multi-generational programs, Our Families, Our Future reveals how supporting and strengthening families is the key to solving many of the nation's most serious social problems.
