from the Executive Director,
Hector Lafarga, Jr.

Mothers’ Club Family Learning Center continues to thrive as we work to fulfill our mission: preparing families living in isolation and poverty to succeed in school and in life through two-generation learning programs. In addition to ensuring the sustainability of our meaningful programs for the neediest families in our community, we are also focused on strengthening the quality of our services, measuring our impact and expanding our programs.

On the programmatic side, we are implementing a new approach to behavior and classroom management called Conscious Discipline.


This self-regulation approach to working with children integrates social-emotional learning and discipline and empowers adults to respond consciously to daily conflict, transforming it into an opportunity to teach critical life skills to children. The method is having a ripple effect at our center, starting with our staff and extending to our families and their home life.

We are excited to announce that we are now in the final stages of building our very own data system which will not only allow us to be more efficient in our work but also be more responsive to our clients. The system will also support the implementation of a longitudinal study that will focus on measuring the impact of our services for both parent and child after they leave Mothers’ Club.

Although having the data to support the impact of services is critical and important, there is nothing like watching the transformation happen before our very eyes. We are seeing more of our parents take ownership of their future, setting goals for themselves and their family, continuing their education and being active participants in the lives of their children.

These are exciting times at Mothers’ Club and with the tireless dedication of our Board of Directors, talented staff, enthusiastic volunteers, and the incredible support of our community, we can accomplish much more.

On behalf of all our families, thank you for your investment in our future!

Hector LaFarga, Jr.
