The Richard and Helen DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society examines the role that religion, family, and community plan in society and public policy. America’s Founders understood that the family is part of the foundation of a free society, and that religious liberty is the first freedom and an important guarantor of a just society.
Today more than ever, these critical institutions need to be strengthened and protected at the level of both principle and policy. Thanks to a grant from the Richard and Helen DeVos Foundation of Grand Rapids, Michigan, The Heritage Foundation in 2004 established the DeVos Center as a way to improve public discourse on these issues and to integrate serious reflection on the role of family, religion, and civil society across policy areas.
The Heritage Foundation’s approach to family and religion emphasizes these permanent institutions’ role in sustaining freedom and the common good. We seek to convey the indispensable role of family and religion in our American order and in our conservative philosophy.
Building on the significant research compiled in recent years, the DeVos Center endeavors to shape a healthy discourse that appreciates the historic and continuing significance of religion and moral virtue in American life. We work closely with all Heritage research departments to apply these principles to policy issues from economics to health care to foreign policy.
