Sacred Bonds – Transforming Marriages, Empowering Parents and Strengthening Families

Welcome to the National Center on African American Marriages and Parenting Website.

We are committed to transforming marriages, empowering parents and strengthening families in African American and other communities.

The historical and current-day strengths of Black marriages, parenting and families and the essential and foundational role that they have played in black child, adult and community well-being and uplift are a testament to their significance. These strengths coupled with the crisis now evident in many African American family relations are presenting Americans with extraordinary opportunities and responsibilities to ensure that these marriage and family relationships are encouraged and supported. This website provides useful information encourage, support and help revive African American marriages and other family relationships.
