Established since the 1980s in the East Garfield Park Community, Family Cares Mission has been a prominent beacon of hope for the community. We’ve cultivated and effectuated radical solutions to youth unemployment, literacy deficiency and disseverment by providing employment opportunities, tutoring and education, college-readiness seminars, personal and interpersonal skill training, counseling and mentoring, and more to develop youth into active leaders and change agents in the community.


We’ve established relationships with a network of other community-based organizations to ensure safety, opportunity, and positive recreational activity for youth in the community. While youth development is a high priority in our focus, we also offer services for families, students, and others in need; providing food, hosting community outreach events, and seminars.
