The Mar Vista Family Center

"Transforming Families & Strengthening Communities for 40 Years" Tax ID 95-2647443


Our History

The Mar Vista Family Center (MVFC) was founded in 1977, and operates on a sustainable and cooperative model through which families remain involved with the Center across generations from early childhood and through to adulthood.


Our Programs: A Holistic Approach

Through its unique Shared Responsibility Curriculum Model, MVFC currently operates within three main program areas: Early Childhood Education, Youth, and Community and has helped transform a community once filled with urban gang violence into a thriving, healthy community — and has given its residents a safe space in which to learn, grow, and lead.


Our Goals

MVFC is committed to the achievement of three goals: to develop leaders, to promote personal growth, and to provide life-changing educational enrichment.
