Our F.A.M.I.L.Y.-Program Development Associate
Our F.A.M.I.L.Y. (Fathers and Mothers Involving Local Youth) develops programs to empower struggling families to improve their quality of life. We develop programs for public schools, libraries and even barber shops to grow appetites for learning. We sponsor science contests and community gardens that teach persons of any age how to grow food and invent something useful. We also make sure they have healthy food for their family through our Summer Food Program and our mobile market delivery service. All of these activities bring people to us to learn about opportunities to improve their own future. Our partner agencies offer assistance with job training, utility bills and legal difficulties. We are the conduit families travel through to a brighter future. We want to expand that conduit so more families can follow their dreams to a life without hunger or financial instability.
