Since Family Honor, Inc. was established, the organization has grown to fill the many needs expressed by parents, decision-makers in faith communities, adolescents, young adults, and many other adults who want to do something positive in their own community.
Family Honor, Inc., a national, nonprofit Catholic organization, located in Columbia, South Carolina, was created in 1987 to provide opportunities for parents and children to learn to communicate effectively on important life values, with a special focus on the truth and goodness of human sexuality and the virtue of chastity.

Created to Love: Honoring God’s Gift
This program is presented on Friday night, for parents only, and all day Saturday, for parents along with teens who are in the 10th, 11th or 12th grade. Parents and teens are sometimes together and sometimes in separated groups. The topics are designed to help parents and teens maintain good communication and “connectedness” even as those teens move toward adulthood. Topics include: Effective Communication, Fertility Appreciation, Dating, Love vs. Infatuation and much more. Even as they move toward independence, teens still look to parents for guidance and support. This program can recharge that important relationship.
Chastity Training for Parish Leaders, Teachers, Youth Leaders, and Parents
The Truth and Meaning of Sexuality, Love & Family: Cultural Implications
This on-line course is designed to be highly relevant for parents, teachers, catechists, youth ministers, marriage preparation leaders, RCIA staff, chastity educators, clergy and religious, all of whom are faced with the serious responsibility to evangelize in their particular sphere of influence on the truth and meaning of human sexuality.The gift of fertility, male/female complementarity, total person sexuality, the virtuous life, chastity, marriage and family will all be presented as building blocks to understanding the implications for the right use of sexual powers, personal happiness and the good of human society. Long standing theories of psychosexual development will be presented and further supported by current brain studies and the psycho-social research on the need for human ‘connectedness.’The faith response to the cultural upheaval will be framed with the language of John Paul II’s theology of the body as well as Benedict XVI’s explanation of human sexual love in Deus Caritas Est.
