By strengthening the entire family unit, kids are more likely to tap into the greatness within. Our Family Strengthening program focuses on educating, empowering, and equipping parents in our community to improve their family’s education, finances, and health through a strategic network of nonprofit and community partners.
With our network of dozens of partners, the Club offers programs in financial literacy, high school equivalency, healthy cooking, English as a Second Language (ESL), parenting, physical fitness, and many more in both English and Spanish. These classes and workshops take place in our facility during the day while children are in school, with childcare provided free of charge for ages 2-5. We believe that only through strengthening the entire family unit can we drastically improve the odds of success for the kids we serve.
This Club has supported me and my family in ways I never would have thought possible. Without the Club, I never would have accomplished my goal of graduating high school! My kids were my motivation. It is important for them to know how valuable education is. With five kids, it was hard making time for myself, but it was worth it because it has changed my life for the better.
