Jim Daly was named president of Focus on the Family in 2005 after 16 years with the ministry. Under his leadership, the organization has taken on a major role nationally in encouraging and helping facilitate foster-care adoptions, earning recognition from the White House and Congress for its efforts.
The ministry also has reinvigorated its traditional focus on helping couples build strong marriages and raise healthy, resilient kids. In just the last 12 months, with the help of Focus on the Family, research indicates that 810,000 couples have built stronger marriages and 940,000 moms and dads built stronger, healthier and more God-honoring families.
Mr. Daly has been married to his wife, Jean, since 1986, and they have two sons. They reside in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
