AS FOR OUR VILLAGE - We come to you as caring family members of THE Village.
THE AFRICAN AMERICAN FAMILY VILLAGE, goal is to help rebuild the broken places in our Family (Fathers, Mothers, Sons & Daughters, Brothers and Sisters) through self-determination, activities, self development and community awareness.
Excuse us for a moment, if you don't mind. The Elders, will be taking some time to have a little talk with The Family!
As in all other races and cultures tend to do, is to take care of their own business and family affairs, it’s only right that we focus on doing the same without the constant interference and interruptions of others. We love, care and are concerned about our family as everyone else. We most certainly can respect it and would appreciate if you would respect us as we do the same.
It's good to know, we do have something in common. We love our families.
The intent and purpose of The African American Family Village is to provide help for the entire family. By way of supporting Families- husbands, wives and their children. Our goal is to help rebuild the family structure of broken homes with the support needed. Also, counseling for fathers and sons relationships, as well as with their daughters, ending the cycle of fatherless homes. It Takes A Village!

Our justice system is not perfect. As a result too often individuals are wrongly convicted of crimes that they did not commit. The NAACP believes that we need to openly address this problem so that we can also prevent wrongful convictions.
