Every day, we hear stories of resilient families that have bounced back from great challenges.

Stories of hope…and stories of struggle. Through these stories we are gathering nuggets of wisdom about the ways in which things could, and should, be going better…to make OUR TOMORROWS brighter.

in Community Sensemaking


Community Action Labs


Parents, children, aunts, uncles, partners – all of us have families, and all of us have something important to share about our lives and interactions. We know there’s much to be learned from all kinds of stories, with all kinds of outcomes. We’re hopeful that the stories we collect will be used to shape policy and programming decisions in your community and across the country. Through OUR TOMORROWS, you get the opportunity to share and reflect, and we get to hear your unique perspective. Using a story-based research tool called SenseMaker, we will examine the patterns and stories in-depth, allowing us to gain new understanding about what families need to thrive. Your contribution to the story collection will make a difference.
