President Abraham Lincoln is the only president to have a registered patent in his name. The patent, the drawing of which is our logo, was a design to stabilize boats by lifting them over rough waters. This is symbolic, as Lincoln had often sought the middle ground in public policy issues in order to stabilize the country through the many difficult problems he faced as a leader. It is our hope that our organization can do the same. On a macro-level, to fight poverty with a middle course that finds solutions regardless of ideology. On a micro-level, to stabilize people and their families as they pass through the turbulent waters of the modern world.
