Our Mission

Mar Vista Family Center (MVFC) provides families with quality early childhood education, youth enrichment and multi-generational programming, and the tools to create the positive change they want in their lives and communities.

MVFC operates on a sustainable and cooperative model through which families remain involved with the Center across generations from early childhood all the way through adulthood.

Through its unique Shared Responsibility Curriculum Model, MVFC has helped transform a community once filled with urban gang violence and unsafe streets into a thriving, healthy community — and given its residents a safe space in which to learn, grow, and lead.
