Achievement Centers for Children & Families is a community based organization dedicated to serving low-income children and families. Our services meet critical needs: affordable toddler, preschool, afterschool and summer program to families living below the poverty line. Our mission to ensure school readiness, provide skill building opportunities, promote academic achievement and support healthy lifestyles.

We serve over 700 children, ages 1 to 18, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 7AM to 7PM on three campuses. 98% of the children qualify for free or reduced school lunch, 96% of the children are minority and nearly half live in non-English speaking households. Our programs improve school readiness, combat food insecurity, close the achievement gab, prevent the summer slide and decrease high school dropout rates.

Our Family Strengthening Program offers parents health and wellness workshops, promoting physical health, financial literacy and lifestyle management. Since 1969, the Achievement Centers has assisted thousands of families break the cycle of poverty and give back to our community. For more information about the Achievement Centers, visit
