We are an affiliate of NCFR (National Council on Family Relationships) and an Illinois State University RSO (Registered Student Organization). The National Council on Family Relations was organized in 1938 to establish a forum for family researchers, educators, and practitioners to share in the development and publication of knowledge about families and family relationships, provide professional standards, and work to promote family well-being. www.ncfr.org
