  • Family Matters

    Family Matters is a non-profit ministry whose goal is to see families transformed by God's grace into instruments of restoration and reformation by equipping families for every age and stage of life. We view families as the foundation of a successful society. Today, perhaps more than ever before, the family is being fragmented and undermined by many counter-forces such as busyness, relentless change, a lack of clear moral values, an attitude of indifference, and children being forced to grow up too fast. When families are unhealthy, our communities suffer many of the consequences in areas relating to economic productivity, education, law enforcement, health care needs, abuse, and violence.

Today's children need Lions more than ever millions of children suffer from poverty, homelessness, hunger, abuse, neglect, disease and disabilities.

That's why theLions Services for Children Program continues Lions Clubs International's long tradition of helping the world's future generations. Lions Services for Children ProjectsThe problems children face vary in degree from country to country, but the need for health and education services is constant and universal. Lions clubs help address these needs by developing projects with specific, attainable goals, including: • Collecting food, clothes or books • Organizing a vision or hearing screening • Providing immunizations through a vaccination drive • Starting a literacy program with a local school, library, community center or Leo club • Supporting a nutritional program for undernourished children • Securing wheelchairs for disabled children • Sending a child with diabetes or physical challenges to a specialized camp Lions have also constructed hospitals, schools, orphanages and children's centers throughout the world to serve youth in need.

According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true can influence the health of children. Children say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illnesses, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family. Currently, there are more than 400 children awaiting their wishes and there are more who qualify for our services, yet we are unable to reach them and grant their wishes due to a lack of funds and capacity. In fact, every year, one in four seriously-ill children in Alaska and Washington do not receive a wish because of a lack of funding.
