Marguerite Casey Foundation is dedicated to creating a movement of working families advocating on their own behalf for change. We strive to bring humility and hope to our work. Our actions are guided by the firm belief that significant positive change is not only possible, but absolutely necessary. Within this framework, we seek to do the following:
- Support and nurture strong, vibrant activism within and among families, enabling them to advocate for their own interests and improve the public and private systems that impact their lives.
- Examine, change and inform the advancement of social and economic policies and practices that promote the development of strong families and strong communities.
- Encourage the development of a coherent knowledge base for advocates, families and the organizations that serve them.
- Invest in system change and cross-system change in order to generate greater knowledge and provide effective working models for practice.
