BENEFITING: LONG BRANCH CONCORDANCE INC
EVENT DATE: Apr 27, 2014
Coastal Communities Family Success Center HELPS FAMILIES SUCCEED! Rooted in the belief that success starts at home, our staff and local partners work directly with families to identify their individual goals and provides the tools, resources, and coaching to help them achieve security and stability. The CCFSC coordinates direct outreach referrals from other organizations and in-house workshops in English and Spanish to promote economic education for our diverse populations. We offer evidence based programs focused on parent education and family literacy. These services assist families by growing their life skills.
Our programs also promote community well-being by encouraging mindful behaviors that lead to safer, healthier and more prosperous neighborhoods. The workshops are an investment in the community and promote engaged parenting. They benefit individuals and families, private institutions, and government agencies. The benefit to society as a whole is exponential! We offer classes and community events focused on parent education, ESL, financial literacy, creative cooking, yoga, Zumba, school-based seminars, health and nutrition workshops, just to name a few!
We co-manage, with the City of Long Branch, the 7th Avenue Community Garden – working alongside families in wellness, growing organic produce to share with our families and the local community. We strive to empower mothers and fathers by providing them with the tools and environment that addresses the unique concerns of their family and helps them to grow stronger relationships with their children.
To meet the demand in our communities for these necessary services, workshops, events, and programs, our costs exceed our state funding. This is where you can help us! Donate, run with us, or volunteer!
