Creed

We are the Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America.
We face the future with warm courage
And high hope.

For we have the clear consciousness of seeking
Old and precious values,
For we are the builders of homes,
Homes for America's future,
Homes where living will be the expression of everything
That is good and fair,
Homes where truth and love and security and faith
Will be realities, not dreams.
