Wilkins, the WFPC's founder and only director, at a United Nations conference in Istanbul, Turkey, in 1996. The primary goals of the WFPC were designed to strengthen the family as the basic unit of society and to guide the United Nations in moral lawmaking practices. The Center was abolished in 2008.
