About Us

Loaded with information for the active family, About Families features information on health, education and parenting in every monthly issue. Additionally, especially themed editorial and advertising are included each month providing a wide range of information through the year which touches on all aspects of raising a family in today’s world.

About Families was originally printed under the name of About Kids when the first edition rolled off the press in 1996 under the ownership of Sharon Patterson and Karen Santoro. At that time, it was only produced eight times per year. The name was subsequently changed to About Families to better illustrate the broader scope of concerns associate with children and their caregivers. In 2002 About Families was purchased by Kapp Advertising and converted to a monthly publication. About Families continued to experience growth in circulation in Berks County and in late 2003 Kapp Advertising introduced a Lebanon County edition.

Partnering with community leaders, local libraries, schools, medical offices and businesses in central Pennsylvania, About Families now has reached a distribution of more than 42,000 copies.
