Services Provided:

MVFC currently operates within three main program areas: Early Childhood Education, Youth, and Community. These three program areas complement each other in a whole-family process, with age- and status-appropriate activities for all family members. Parents and their young children participate together in the Baby and Me and Preschool Programs, where children acquire basic learning skills and their parents practice life and parenting skills. After graduation from the Preschool Program, children are encouraged to move on to the Youth Program – and its wealth of educational, recreational, and leadership activities – while their parents find new activities in the Community Program. Many parents in the Community Program are joined by their teenagers who have successfully led and mentored youth projects and are ready to work towards the achievement of broad community goals.
