Administration Helps U.N. Promote 'Year of the Family.' (United Nations Proclaimed 1994 as the International Year of the Family)(includes Related Information on City Assistance)


President Clinton hopes to Focus national attention on the importance of the family, during 1994, backing the United Nations' plan to bill 1994 as the International Year of the Family.

Clinton recently proclaimed the official theme for the United States as "Family: Resources and Responsibilities in a Changing World." The objective of the theme, which is being implemented through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is to involve states, cities and towns in a collaborative effort to bring national attention to the issue of family.

"We are encouraging federal agencies to work with public and private agencies, and professional groups in states and localities across the country to help focus their efforts on the importance of the family in our society," said HHS Secretary Donna E. Shalala.,

Specifically Clinton's proclamation calls for the generation of local, regional and national activities to:

* raise awareness of family issues;

* strengthen national family policies;

* address problems affecting families;

* enhance effectiveness of existing programs and supports for families; and * build upon events concerning the family and each of its members.

"As the NLC Human Development Policy Committee Chairperson and as the developer and coordinator of one of the model family and children's services programs in Tallahassee, I am excited about President Clinton' s designation of this year as the International Year of the Family," said HD Committee Chair Dorothy Inman-Crews, mayor of Tallahassee, Fla.
