DEDICATED TO FAMILIES!
“A PLACE to find SOLUTIONS when LIFE HAPPENS!”
“A PROGRAM Building & Protecting THE FUTURE OF THE FAMILY!”
WHAT IS THE NEED?
Chris & Debbie Cloud in all parts of the world have been active in building community and supporting families around the globe. They are now based out of their beloved Virginia in Fauquier County, yet their efforts continue. The plan is a Non Profit that researches current concerns facing families.
Through investigation consider the different core causes driving the epidemic proportions in so many areas of life that are harming families, and the children around the globe. The purpose is to formulate strategic action plans working with other Peers to find real solutions.
With careful consideration and a collaborative efforts across cultural families, AND industries, AND service agencies, AND organizations, AND government agencies, AND interested parties (that means YOU and anyone else will to step up) to find ways to reduce the destruction undermining the family unit and build up family within a strong community network.
Their strategic plan is to unite efforts of survivors dedicated to recovery and solutions with existing organizations and programs. Together supporting projects that help effect change, and ultimately, secure a better future for families in America, and around the Globe.
The GLOBAL FAMILY ALLIANCE is dedicated to promoting early detection and intervention for current rising cultural concerns, preventing family crisis that cause at-risk youth, and developing strong, empowered families within the community through advocacy, education, research and service.
TO CREATE a Peer to Peer structure that can be repeated by those willing to dedicate to their own recovery and empowerment, and the efforts of the Mission.
TO SUPPORT those facing the power of a coercive control situation needing a mechanism find real solutions to their problems. The goal is to connect those that have been effected by crisis with Professionals, Government, Organizations and other Providers that have shared training in Trauma Informed research and interventions that are effective for this population. Further to use a connecting structure for the different Resources to effectively work together as teams with the Peers to impact the cultural concerns. This positive, collaborative effort roots out the points of targeting and provide real solutions for successful lives.
TO BUILD positive connections to empower survivors, children and communities to prevent further divisions, targeting and destruction to families and children.
THE FOCUS FOR 2018
TO STOP THE ASSAULTS ON FAMILY. TO STOP CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING. TO STOP DRUG OVERDOSES. TO STOP ALL THE ABUSES putting youth at risk having disastrous outcomes for family.
The addition and deaths of Opioids are front and center right now as a national crisis. Not known by the public Human Trafficking numbers in the last years have risen so fast it will surpass Opioids within two years. Sexual Predators assaulting and raping children and adults are being exposed right and left. The point in how do we not only deal with the crisis, but get ahead.
THE CORE CONCERNS
The questions posed by GLOBAL FAMILY ALLIANCE looks at current trends and underlying currents to define education, prevention, early intervention and crisis teams that will change the wave of destruction.
Realizing that the chains of are Coercive Control and stems out of Domestic Violence and other Trauma show to be deeply embedded in the current concerns, along with long standing culture Denial of Abuse and Acceptance of Abusive Behaviors behaviors leaving populations vulnerable, disempowered and able to be re-victimized over and over again needing more and more government services for intervention. The Cycle of Abuse has to stop. The Victim Triangle has to end.
Thus, GLOBAL FAMILY ALLIANCE is focused on identifying the individual weak links in society, community, family and individuals to address concerns and provide Empowering options. The new programs are exciting and fundraising for the training and the software to network and training is underway.
