Family Programs & Events

Family Success Partners (FSP)

Started in 2007, our FSP program promotes student success and family stability for White Center families. Our dedicated Family Success Partners connect White Center families with resources and support so the entire family can thrive. They help families navigate the school system and become leaders in systems change. You will find our FSP's in our neighborhood schools, or you can email them here.  


Early Learner Connectors (ELC)

This program provides culturally appropriate and language-based learning supports for caregivers (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, older siblings, neighbors and others) who take care of children aged 0-5. Caregivers gain knowledge, activities and resources to help their children grow healthy and strong and ready for kindergarten! Contact our Early Learning Connectors here
