Be a part of Family Connections

Be a part of our family and make a positive change to a child's future.

Welcome to Family Connections

Research has shown that starting early and engaging parents in their child’s education is positively associated with a child’s academic, social and emotional wellbeing. That is why Family Connections has evolved into a family learning community in which underserved children and parents attend tuition free programs together, learn together and grow together, from birth through high school.

Family Connections has been supporting Peninsula families since 1993. We currently operate in East Palo Alto, East Menlo Park and Redwood City, serving approximately 600 individuals per year.
