A Bit About Us

At The Family Place, we strive to promote stability and well-being for immigrant & low-income families in the Washington, DC area. We offer free education, support services, case management, and social support in Spanish.

The Family Place provides a welcoming, multi-cultural environment for every family or individual that enters our building. Dedicated to meeting the needs of our participants, we assist people of all ages, ethnicity, and background.

 

Vision

The Family Place (TFP) is a charity founded with a vision to create a safe family center to help single mothers to access a range of supports and be the best possible parents.

Today, in partnership with The Family Place Public Charter School (TFPPCS), TFP offers high-quality adult English and workforce development classes for parents and early childhood education for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. All of our educational efforts are supported by wrap-around case management services.

Helping children and their parents is our drive, which is why TFP offers all its services in Spanish and free of charge to all immigrant families and low-income families that request our services.
