The Family Support Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that was founded in 1997 with a mission to improve the quality of life of children and families in the River Region through education, advocacy, and employment. Through our many programs, we are able to fulfill this mission, make stronger individuals, families and communities. At the Family Support Center, we offer Parenting Classes, Fatherhood Classes, GED/Adult Education Classes, EL Civics Classes, Employment Preparation Services (JOBS), ASVAB Tutoring, Computer Classes, WorkKeys® National Career Ready Certification Assessment, COPE (life skill) Classes and Teen Parenting Classes ,as well as, Shaken Baby Syndrome Prevention training and Mandatory Reporting training. The center is primarily funded through federal, state and local grants, as well as, through fundraisers and donations. Also, all of our programs are free. This past year we worked with over 1800 individuals and taught over 2100 classes.
What you can do to help: Since the center is grant funded and our programs are free, there are several ways in which you can help the Family Support Center to sustain our wonderful programs.
First, we need the support of our community. Our main location is in the heart of beautiful historic downtown Prattville, but we have satellite locations spread throughout Autauga County and Millbrook. We need you to support us by spreading the word about the wonderful programs and services we offer to the community.
Second, we need your support in promoting the center. If you are a member of church, organization, civic group or club we are looking for opportunities to speak about the center. Please call to set up a time for us speak to your group 334-361-4703.
Third, follow us on Facebook to share about fundraising events, family resources, celebrations and employment opportunities.
Lastly, we need monetary support. Most of our large program grants require us to have a 25% cash match. For every $1 you donate we are able to secure $4 in grant funding. Having this cash match helps to sustain our programs and shows a greater return on your investment. You can help through monetary contributions in several ways. You can send a check to the Center at 113 W Main Street, Prattville, AL 36067, or you can click here to make a donation through Square. You can also donate through Amazon Smile. Simply click here log in with the same information you would for your regular or Prime Amazon account and 0.5% of your total purchase will go to FSC.
