2023 FMI Vision Awards

FMI Vision Awards


4:30 to 6 p.m., Oct. 12, 2023



The Frances McClelland Institute for Children, Youth, and Families (FMI) uses research to improve the lives of vulnerable children, youth, and families. We build innovative teams of scientists committed to tackling the most pressing issues facing families. We partner to put our research into the hands of families, community members and practitioners who are on the front lines of building family and youth resilience. We educate the next generation of scholars and community leaders. 

The Frances McClelland Vision Awards were created to celebrate the legacy of Frances McClelland, who was a generous and tireless advocate for children, youth, and families, especially those experiencing adversity and injustice. Frances exemplified, supported, and celebrated resilience during her lifetime. The annual awards are given to those who share Francesʼ and FMIʼs vision of strong communities that support family resilience so that all children and youth, especially those who are most disadvantaged, have the opportunity to thrive. We also honor the legacy of another visionary leader in our community, Richard Elías, a longtime community advocate and leader, who served on the Pima County Board of Supervisors and the FMI Advisory Council.
