Mar Vista Family Center

Helping families create positive change in their lives and their communities.

Make a difference today.

We cannot succeed without your ongoing support. Every cent of your contribution is used to help transform the lives of disadvantaged children, youth, and families.

Our Mission

The Mar Vista Family Center (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.
