This is about the children…and their future. Parent involvement is the key first element in a child’s educational success. This is about families learning together and getting children to school ready to learn and thrive. We’re just here to support you along the way.
We believe in the potential of children. We believe in the power of parents, education, and opportunity. We believe in the fabric of community.
At Partnership for Families, we equip Northside parents with the tools and knowledge they need to get their children to school ready to learn, grow, and thrive. We help parents and children learn together and build networks of support. In doing so, we empower Northside families to address issues beyond their own home, uplifting the larger community for generations to come.
Our model has three programs that can be seen as separate but integrated parts:
Parent and Child Together (PACT) Time
Family Service Learning
