Since 1983, Family Focus Highland Park has offered high quality community-based programs to children and families in Highland Park and Highwood. Family Focus provides bilingual (English and Spanish) prevention-based support, including child development activities for expectant parents and families with children ages birth through three, afterschool programs for children in kindergarten through 5th grade (serving seven local schools), and a wide range of services including adult education, parenting classes, and support groups. HPCF’s funding supports the Early Childhood Dual Language Program at Family Focus, which evolved from a need to address language delays teachers at Family Focus observed in children at the Center. By providing activities that include socialization, literacy, music, free play, movement and more, Family Focus helps create a strong base for lifelong learning. Parents are also provided with opportunities to come together to socialize and support each other.
