What a difference a quarter century makes. 25 years ago, Maryann Fleming had an idea with a lot of heart: develop strong, healthy families to build thriving communities in San Francisco’s underserved Portola and Excelsior neighborhoods. 25 years later, Fleming’s idea, Family Connections (www.portolafc.org), is one of the Bay Area’s most respected nonprofits, having served more than 40,000 people and set to open an expanded facility late this year.
For 25 years, Family Connections has served primarily low-income, immigrant
Their array of more than 30 interconnected, participant-driven programs is designed to provide a comprehensive continuum of care from early childhood education to grandparent support groups and from family literacy to intensive case management. The goal is to support and empower parents and caregivers to develop healthy families that will, in turn, create a thriving community in which to raise children. David Perry & Associates, Inc. is privileged to be of service to them in their 25th anniversary year.
