The Family Center is excited to be entering our 9th year of service to the Grosse Pointes and Harper Woods communities! We are a local, community-based organization whose goals are geared to benefit our local community. Consider donating “local” this year by supporting The Family Center. By supporting The Family Center, you, in turn, support your community.
The Family Center’s mission is to promote a deeper understanding of the role of parents and others in supporting our youth to become competent, caring and responsible community members. We do this by providing live, face-to-face time with experts delivering information on timely topics.
We serve as a community resource hub, providing parents, caregivers and professionals with access to information from local experts in many areas, including mental health, pediatrics, dentistry and other organizations. Parenting is a difficult job; it does not come with a handbook. The Family Center keeps its pulse on the needs of parents and caregivers and responds with programming to meet these needs.
The Family Center partners with local hospitals and other agencies for additional quality, expert advice and programs on topics, ranging from toilet training to sports injuries. The Family Center also has an extensive website, www.familycenterweb.org, which provides additional resource connections and information.
The Family Center’s Goal for our CELEBRATE 9!! campaign is to raise $90,000 over the 2009-10 year so we can continue to provide our community with valuable, quality programming and resources for the purpose of supporting families. Please help us meet our goal! The Family Center is a 501(c)(3) organization that relies heavily on donations from individual donors, family foundations, organizations and businesses.
Remember, by contributing to The Family Center, you are in turn, supporting your local community.
