What we're about

Baton Rouge Families First is an organization founded in 2017 with the goal of empowering lower and middle income families in Baton Rouge by strengthening the family structure, encouraging education reform and promoting good, quality jobs through proactive economic development.

With an escalating crime rate, failing schools, and a need for quality jobs, BRFF is dedicated to promoting policies that allow Baton Rouge families to thrive.

Only through positive changes that encourage and strengthen families will our citizens, community, and state succeed. We strive to provide the necessary resources to help make Baton Rouge a great place that families will want to flock to for years to come.

We believe that crime can only be solved by strengthening the family unit.

We believe in respect and support for our law enforcement and first responders.

We believe that steady jobs will help attract the nation’s best and brightest to our city.

We believe in economic development that creates and maintains quality jobs for our citizens.

A Prayer for Our Families

“The family is the privileged setting where every person learns to give and receive love.

The family is an intermediate institution between individuals and society, and nothing can completely take its place.

The family is a necessary good for peoples, and indispensable foundation for society, and a great and lifelong treasure for couples. 

It is a unique good for children, who are meant to be the fruit of the love, of the total and generous self-giving of their parents. 

The family is also a school that enables men and women to grow to the full measure of their humanity.

O God, who in the holy family, left us a perfect model of family life lived in faith and obedience to your will, help us to be perfect examples of faith and love for your commandments.”

-Pope Benedict XVI
