Strategic Thinking for Real Life

Big, messy life situations have quite a few moving parts. Knowing where to start makes all the difference.

Family Road Map Institute creates opportunities for people to learn step-by-step methods for breaking down big, messy life situations into manageable tasks. Using simple, practical tools such as the Guiding Star, people can learn how to:

  • Find information that matters to their unique needs.
  • Gain basic knowledge about systems (such as healthcare, education, and insurance) that affect their needs.
  • Build relationships that lead to solutions and support.

Life gets messy, but it can get a lot less complicated.


Family Road Map Institute supports the work of
Team Up for Families (TUFF), a non-profit, family advocacy organization that is dedicated to exploring the impact of providing adult learners with creative opportunities for strategic thinking about life’s complex situations.
