Event Coordinator

Website TFFVA The Family Foundation

In 1985 Walt Barbee, an airline pilot and resident of Fairfax County, became aware of the concerning material being taught in his children’s sex education program in the Fairfax public school system. Other parents became interested in helping him develop a strategy to have the program changed. Walt quickly discovered that parents in other localities were fighting the same battle and soon expanded into a statewide change in the law and the need to address additional family issues such as abortion and school choice. Out of this effort The Family Foundation was birthed and in 1988 they associated with Focus on the Family. In time, The Family Foundation established five biblical principles as guideposts for advocacy (see and established their mission preserve and promote the family in Virginia as God’s foundation upon which all free and thriving societies are built. They inspire Virginians, pastors and legislators to engage in meaningful conversations and productive actions that advance these biblical principles in the public square; to incorporate the unique, God-given passions of individuals and organizations into the work, thereby increasing the number of laborers, and, to instigate carefully chosen political and cultural battles that prompt necessary changes to the law in Virginia in these five principle areas.
