The Story of HomeWord
Once upon a time, 35 years ago, a group of people with a strong passion for helping the next generation decided to help kids navigate a changing culture and grow up to become responsible adults who love God. Out of this passion, HomeWord was born, and this passion spread as they partnered with parents and churches to help the whole family succeed. Their values became: Strong Marriages, Confident Parents, Empowered Kids, and Healthy Leaders. HomeWord began creating life-changing resources while equipping influential leaders and partnering with 2 million resources offered ton over 30 languages, all with the purpose of helping families succeed.
