Who We Are
We work in partnership with families through a shared vision that all families in our community have the opportunity to lead productive, healthy and interdependent lives regardless of race, income, ethnicity or where they live. Over 600 individuals and families accessed resources at our center in 2013.
Our staff is comprised of dedicated community members who reflect the population we serve. They are committed to working with families through a collaborative, strengths-based and culturally competent framework.
Our main focus areas are:
- Family Strengthening Services
- Healthy Living Program
- Early Childhood Education
- Youth Enrichment Programs
- Adult Education
- Resource & Referral
The Family Center/La Familia maintains collaborative relationships with social service agencies and organizations, providing referral services to connect families with additional resources specific to their individualized needs. We advocate for the families we serve on a local and statewide level in efforts to address institutionalized disparities. We believe that services and systems should be fair, responsive, and accountable to all people.
The Family Center / La Familia operates through a Protective Factors framework that promotes healthy outcomes for the whole family. Those five protective factors are parental resilience, social connections, knowledge of parenting and child development, concrete support in times of need and social and emotional competence of children.
The Family Center La Familia is a not-for-profit organization designated as a 501(c)3 charitable organization. By supporting our Program, your gift is tax-deductible as allowed by law
