Mission Statement

The mission of The Family Place is to empower low-income families and to foster the optimal development of their young children through educational and support services.

Description

The Family Place (TFP) is a community-based, multicultural family resource and support agency for low-income expectant parents and families with young children (under 5 years of age). These families are newly-arrived from Central America and Mexico. TFP is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation established in 1980 as the District's first family support agency. Over the years, in response to client needs, TFP programs have evolved to address the issues of: linguistic and economic isolation; low literacy; school readiness; family instability; social/community isolation; access to mainstream services; physical and developmental health of children; and civic involvement. In the past year, nearly 600 families partnered with TFP in a culturally-respectful environment to become empowered and move forward in their efforts to achieve long term self-sufficiency.
