The Heritage Foundation—shaping the world!

Family FactsWhen you say, "public policy think tank" a few prestigious organizations come to mind and certainly The Heritage Foundation would top the list!  Since 1973 the Foundation has enjoyed a national platform for research and education.  They not only promote conservative public policy, they're at the grass roots of formulating that policy.

Joni and Friends®— Meaningful Milestones

NRB was such a heartwarming time of reconnecting over the last year's activity, sharing meals together and experiencing the unique bond of unity through Christ.
