Enhancing the lives of contemporary couples and families by supporting innovative research, creative intervention programs and clinical education

Our mission is to:

  • Provide cutting-edge clinical training to empower therapists with tools to meet the changing needs of today's diverse relationships.

  • Foster the advancement of couples and family therapy as a discipline by offering dissertation research grants.

  • Support Innovative programs which focus on the relevant issues of contemporary families and couples.

The Foundation for the Contemporary Family, a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization, was originally created by a generous anonymous donation from a man who was able to significantly transform his life through effective couples and family therapy.


His intention was to facilitate ways for other families to receive the powerful benefit of good therapy that helped him evolve from a period of deep disconnection to a life of contentment and secure attachments. He also recognized the value of preventing potential problems through effective parent education, innovative clinical research, and creative intervention programs.


Rarely do people donate money to express gratitude for their renewed mental health as they often do for saving their physical health. The Foundation is forever grateful for his incredible contribution and his acknowledgement of the impact on a person’s well-being of having close, healthy relationships.  Learn More..
