Legacy Family Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our goal is to address unmet social and educational needs of children and their families with emphasis on developing the capacity
 of the family through partnerships and collaborations in the community.

The mission of Legacy Family Center is to serve as a catalyst for families to affect their own change by providing education and social services within the communities in which they reside. 

"Let’s Read Together!"

Legacy Family Center's literacy program offers youth (13-17 years) in the communities of Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center an opportunity to model the joy of reading to younger children (birth to 12 years). Parents, who must focus on day-to-day support of the family often do not have the time to read to their young children.  "Let’s Read Together!" gives young children the opportunity to listen to stories, which strengthens their imagery, literacy, and support language development.

A youth is an asset to early literacy. LFC believes, when a youth is incentivized, they can engage and contribute to advancing the knowledge of young children by connecting them to the world of literature through reading. The success of "Let's Read Together" depends on youth 13-17 years. Your gifts ensure that youth remain apart of the early literacy program and build valuable leadership skills. 

Benefits

  1. Builds positive relationships between youth readers, younger children, and parents/caregivers in the community.
  2. Youth readers build confidence in their reading skills, which leads to confidence in all aspects of their life.  
  3. Young children learn to listen, focus their attention, acquire language, and build necessary skills for school.

Long-term goals:

  1. Recruit 10 youth readers
  2. Engage 300 listeners by the end of 2022.
  3. Build capacity to expand the program.
