Family Engagement Programs

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.

  • Parent and Family Initiatives
    Our family engagement efforts include:
    • Our flexible Family Visiting program helps strengthen parent and child interactions, ensuring children are ready for school and parents are achieving their personal and parenting goals.
    • The Parenting Journey, a course that allows caregivers to reflect on how they were parented as children, and supports them to make intentional parenting decisions to ensure strong outcomes for their children.
    • A partnership with Healthy Futures, which offers resources and trainings on social-emotional development.

    Our program also offers education to caregivers, connecting them to a range of vital resources related to parenting, financial literacy, and adult education.

  • Anacostia Family Success Center: Coming October 2020
