Family Founded. Family Focused.

FILTER was created by sisters and co-founders Hallie House and Hannah George to combat the serious and harmful impacts we are seeing social media have on our young people. With 10 children between the two of them, ages 4 to 17, they found that although there are plenty of resources for parents on the dangers of unbridled smartphone and social media use on teens, there was little on the market that actually focused on educating the pre-teens and teens. Spurred on by this realization FILTER was born.

1st kid in the family went to middle school and the first FILTER seeds were planted.

Mom got a flip phone to prove to her kids it could in fact be done.

Realized waiting on a smartphone is the best plan, and high school is a good time but remained very alone in that choice. 

Decided that we had to create a movement in order to make a better world for our kids. Tossed around ideas, and decided a program for schools was the way to go. We knew we wanted to create something catchy and relevant tagline kids could get behind. Had a lot of misfires but eventually, we landed on FILTER and the rest is history!

Launched our program and had 15 schools and churches complete the curriculum.

Launched the FILTER First Foundation to get our curriculum in the hands of as many students as possible. 

WE DO LIVE SEMINARS!

Our passion is to share the message of F.I.L.T.E.R. First with parents and students of all ages. We tailor our presentations to fit your organization’s needs, and help your community get inspired to join the #FILTERFIRST movement.
