SOUTHFIELD (wxyz) – The 2014 Restoring Marriage & Family Life Conference was hosted at the Islamic House of Wisdom in Dearborn Heights.  Action News Anchor Vic Faust was the emcee for this event.  Religious leaders from all over the area, specifically Detroit, came together to put a five-year plan in place to help build strong families in the City of Detroit.  They are starting a “grass-roots” campaign aimed at helping families, which studies show, help kids and improve community, which in turn provides a safer community.

Muslims, Jews and Christians participated in groups with one another, all focused on the same goals.  All agree that divorce is tearing apart families and people need to learn how to be good husbands and wives before they get married and have children.
