Our Mission

Reluctant Preppers believes that we are living in a time of unprecedented risk, and that it is necessary and increasingly urgent for responsible people to take reasonable steps to protect themselves and their families from the coming financial upheaval. I've learned that we cannot depend on the system to protect our interests and our families; we need to step up and take prudent action ourselves. I've also learned there are some basic first steps and some trustworthy resources to help us start insuring what we cannot afford to lose.

I care about our families and my mission is to help us increase all of our families' safety and preparedness.
