Program Information


Family & Children’s Agency seeks to improve the lives of Norwalk’s middle school youth by enabling their successful transition into high school and increasing their ability to be productive, independent young adults. This is accomplished by providing a safe and structured community-based After School Program for students to improve academic performance, develop character, and promote healthy peer interactions and lifestyles.

The program operates on the school calendar and does not offer programs during holidays and vacations.
