Whole Mission provides high-quality health education and support for families in all stages, with a concern for care of the whole person. Our current goals are to grow and promote access to, and research for, secure methods of natural family planning, specifically the Marquette Method, and to provide breastfeeding education and support for women and families.
In additional to health education, Whole Mission provides a platform and technical support to healthcare professionals who provide these vital services. Part of our income is allocated to support research and advancements in natural family planning, and to help increase accessibility for all families who desire health education in fertility and lactation.
"...the whole person and the whole mission to which human beings have been called will be taken into account, for this [mission] pertains not only to the natural and earthly existence of human beings but also to their supernatural and eternal existence.” (Humanae Vitae, §7)
