Building Peaceful Families celebrates, educates, and inspires individuals through programs that help them become more involved, responsible, and committed family and community members.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
CELEBRATE, EDUCATE, INSPIRE
Founded in 2004 by Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Sharon Chatman, Building Peaceful Families has provided programs in our community that enrich the lives of men, women, and children. By encouraging, educating, honoring, and engaging parents and other role models, we have positively impacted the lives of thousands of Bay Area children.
BPF specifically targets the underserved in our community - grandparents raising their own grandchildren, father and father figures, single parents, parents in the criminal justice system, teenage fathers and mothers, and people with physical challenges. We know that by making a positive impact on an adult, we will positively influence the life of a child.
It is difficult to adequately express the importance of the BPF mission, and the determination and passion we feel for what we do. By treating every one of our program participants with dignity and respect, we are actively striving to build peaceful families in the San Francisco Bay Area.
