About Us

About Us.

Since 1997, The Family Centered Educational Agency has served thousands of community residents annually. Funding for our agency supports both the core operations and education based services which include: college preparation and tutoring and financial literacy. These services are offered to our clients free of charge.

Our Mission:

To provide education to families through holistic community/economic development, and direct human services, while providing capacity building to the organizations which serve them.

Our success is due to the valuable partnerships we’ve established with local agencies, school districts, and businesses. You can partner with us by embracing our mission and participating in our growth—growth that has produced the following outcomes:

  • In the fiscal year 2016-2017, staff members provided more than 26,515 services (equals 19,695.67 hours of service) to students, community residents, and other adults
  • More than 600 families received financial literacy training and information
  • 99% of our high school seniors graduated 
  • 73% of our high school graduates enrolled in college
  • 40% of our college enrollees remained in college
