...to empower low-income families and to foster the optimal development of their young children through educational and support services.
This fall, the Family Place will enhance and expand its long-standing mission to support the education and well-being of its clients through TFP’s highly successful, family-friendly, two-generation educational and social services model. The adult education programs will grow into The Family Place Independent Public Charter School, providing expanded English language lessons, computer skills classes, and job training opportunities for 100 adult learners. These charter school programs will be complimented by the continuation of The Family Place’s early childhood classes and family wellness and family security social support programs. Thus, more parents of young children will be able to attend more classes and receive social support services at the Family Place, while their young children are cared for and enriched by our early childhood education classes.
Although we expect substantial funds once the charter school is opened, there are numerous start-up costs now and prior to the opening and funding of the charter school. In order to make this all happen, we need financial support from our donors to cover these costs and to maintain and continue the traditional, long-standing services that enable family wellness and family security.
We invite you to join us to celebrate and support this effort at an evening of cultural fun at The Family Place. AND, even if you can’t be with us that evening, we encourage you to support this effort with a generous donation.
Donate online at our website or mail a check. All donations greatly appreciated!

The Family Place achieves its mission by offering services in three program areas. They allow us the ability to provide education and training, administer critical resources, as well as provide access to community support services to under-served families.
