Our 50th-anniversary logo, a heart mended in Kintsugi style, symbolizes Richstone Family Center’s enduring mission. This design, featuring a heart with golden seams, embodies the Japanese art of Kintsugi, which beautifies brokenness. It represents our journey of healing and resilience, honoring the strength and renewed beauty in the families we serve. This logo is a testament to turning challenges into hope, reflecting our commitment to mending hearts and empowering communities.
