RESOLVE exists to provide:

◊ Access to Care
◊ Advocacy for Coverage
◊ Access to Support & Community
◊ Access to Education
◊ Awareness of All Family Building Options

RESOLVE’s Board of Directors, Staff and Volunteers operate with:

◊ Care and compassion
◊ Integrity and without bias
◊ Respect for all resolutions
◊ Credibility and authority
◊ A strong sense of community
◊ The goal to drive positive change
◊ A passionate belief that everyone deserves the right of family

RESOLVE’s Board of Directors developed a 3-year Strategic Plan in February 2020 to support all people challenged in building a family. Three core pillars guide the Strategic Plan: Relevant Education, Meaningful Support, and Legislative Progress, with specific areas of focus of the Plan listed below.

  • Increase our reach with digital and in-person information to guide people throughout their family building journey.
  • Expand the Coverage at Work program, which provides everything employees need to persuade their employers to voluntarily add family building benefits.
  • Re-envision our support group network; we desire to provide the best experience and grow the network to reach more people in need.
  • Deepen the volunteer experience for the hundreds of people that dedicate themselves to RESOLVE and our mission in all areas.
  • Inspire the voice of the family building community.
  • Engage with lawmakers at the federal and state levels on access to medical treatment, adoption, and surrogacy options.
