We are committed to ensuring parents and caregivers are both supported and supportive. Our Family Engagement program helps strengthen the home-school relationship for our students and connects caregivers to critical resources.
All parents deserve a strong support network–we encourage family success through programming that centers on caregivers.
For Families with Enrolled Children:
We offer a flexible, monthly family visiting program during the first two years of your child’s life while they attend our early education center at The Commons in Southeast D.C. This program helps to strengthen parent and child interactions, ensuring children are ready for school and parents are achieving their personal and family goals.
For Families without Enrolled Children:
Through our Early Head Start program, we offer weekly family visiting for the parents of young children who are not currently enrolled in our early education center. This program focuses on supporting parents in their important role as their child’s first teacher.

What is the Family Success Center?
Martha’s Table at The Commons is expanding its community-driven services to better support children and youth, families, and individuals living in Anacostia and surrounding neighborhoods.
The center is a one-stop-shop that offers comprehensive resources in health, wellness, education, parenting, and workforce readiness. At the Center, you will meet a passionate team of people who know, love, and stand ready to support their Ward 8 neighbors.
Martha’s Table is part of a network of ten neighborhood-based Family Success Centers under Mayor Bowser’s Families First DC initiative. Families First DC was created to strengthen resources for families in the communities where they live.
Martha’s Table at The Commons will help you access the resources you and your family need to thrive.

When we started planning Martha’s Table’s milestone 40th Anniversary, of course we had no idea what 2020 would have in store. Through everything that’s happened this year, we’ve been fortunate to receive generous support from the business community, both locally and nationally.
