Centro La Familia understands the stresses that can accompany family life and the challenges they can face. Through its family strengthening division Centro offers families an outside perspective to find new ways of becoming knowledgeable of proper parenting skills, build leadership development, address children’s academic barriers and overcome challenging situations. The family strengthening division aims to support families through outreach education, access to resources, and teaching parents they are their child’s first teacher. Parents and children gain knowledge through structured parenting classes designed to foster growth and development, access to tutoring and mentoring for children, and building leadership skills through community involvement.
