Kent Ostrander (B.A. - Vanderbilt University) attended Lafayette High School in Lexington and then studied at Vanderbilt University, graduating magna cum laude with a degree in mathematics. He was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa honorary society as a junior.
Kent began work on The Family Foundation in 1988, establishing a Board and incorporating the organization in 1989. Kent and his wife, Joyce, have seven adult children.

"The bottom line is we are The Family Foundation, and expansion of gambling through casinos or online is targeting one group only: moms and dads," said Kent Ostrander, founder of The Family Foundation of Kentucky. "It's an effort to separate a family from its assets. The family is the building block of any society, and yet it is the most vulnerable institution in that society."
Ostrander said there is a push in Kentucky, as in many other states, to add slot machines or casino-style gambling to racetracks in order to increase the tracks' viability.
He said the added tax revenue to state governments will be more than offset by the societal costs of expanded gambling, particularly if it is made as easy as logging on to a computer.
"We are going to find ourselves with more broken homes and families than we can afford," he said.

Plenty of court watchers hope so.
"Across the nation, it is tantamount to martial law on state marriage policies when relatively few federal judges are overturning marriage amendments that millions of people have voted upon and decided," said Kent Ostrander, executive director of Family Foundation of Kentucky, which opposes gay marriage.

said Kent Ostrander, executive director of the Family Foundation of Kentucky.
Ostrander said he is glad a federal appeals court upheld Kentucky's gay marriage ban that voters ratified in 2004.
"It wasn't bashing gays and lesbians, it was simply saying to everyone who wanted to redefine marriage, that marriage is one man and one woman," Ostrander said. "And when the people spoke overwhelmingly then, it's the duty of the courts to honor what the people have said."
That is what Ostrander said he hopes the Supreme Court will do.
"We've taken a stand like a stone wall and hopefully that'll ultimately triumph in Washington before the Supreme Court," Ostrander said.
