Welcome to Family Life Education

"My name is Vicenta. Maybe you never heard my name but I have you in my mind, because thanks to you and all the people who work at Family Life, my family and I have many opportunities in Hartford." July 2009

Since 1987, Family Life Education has helped hundreds of families in greater Hartford change their lives through education, case management and outreach.

Your financial, material and personal involvement are key in helping to provide support, direction and advocacy for families to meet basic needs; for adults, teens and children to become educated and to learn the critical skills for building stronger, healthier communities.

Family Life Education

is the


Connecticut Chapter, PeaceJam New England



PeaceJam is an international organization dedicated to creating young leaders committed to positive change in themselves, their communities and the world through the inspiration of Nobel Peace Laureates and the support of a global community of peers.  Founded in 1996, PeaceJam has engaged more than 600,000 young people worldwide, and PeaceJammers have created almost one million “Call to Action” projects addressing problems in their schools and communities.  Thirteen Nobel Peace Laureates sit on the Board of PeaceJam, which has been nominated seven different times for the Nobel Peace Prize.

In 2012, Family Life Education became PeaceJam’s first New England chapter, a tremendous honor.  As the Connecticut PeaceJam Chapter, we are responsible for supporting existing PeaceJam youth groups across the State and encouraging the establishment of new groups.  This past year, the Chapter established “The Hartford Peacemakers,” a group of urban girls committed to change.

The Connecticut PeaceJam Chapter is also responsible for training PeaceJam advisors, who are adults interested in working with PeaceJam youth groups.  Further, we are responsible for organizing an annual PeaceJam Slam and promoting the participation of Connecticut PeaceJam youth groups in the annual Northeast Regional PeaceJam Conference.  This year’s conference, featuring Nobel Laureate Jodi Williams, drew over 400 youth from throughout New England to discuss social justice issues, including violence, and developing strategies to eliminate it locally and abroad.

On June 8-9, PeaceJam youth traveled from across New England, including Hartford, to take part in the One Million bones Project.  The project is part of a three-day installation on the National Mall to bring handmade paper bones from throughout the world to resemble the bones hurt or lost due to violence.   It will exist as a collaborative site of conscience to honor victims and survivors of atrocities worldwide. Also, it will serve as a visual petition against conflicts, and a calling for much needed and long overdue action.  To learn more about PeaceJam, please visit:

Calling All First-time Dads!


garden 2012 andrew plant upside down2012 garden girl upside down planting

The Nurturing Families program is actively recruiting men who are fathers - including stepfathers or boyfriends taking on the role of fathers- for the first time, in the lives of children in Greater Hartford.

Every child deserves to be raised within a nurturing environment and fathers play a key role in this process. Education and life skills begin in the home and we are here to help it happen.

With resources from the National Fatherhood Initiative, we offer help and support for expecting and new fathers. The program is completely voluntary and free and includes weekly or monthly home visits, support and referrals for education, employment, health, basic needs and more.
