Family Fundamentals is a collaboration of organizations committed to strengthening families and our community by increasing access and awareness to resources and services.
Spearheaded by United Way of Central Florida and founded by Carol Barnett of Publix Charities, this Success By 6 parent resource center is a warm, welcoming place where parents and other family members come to access information, support services, and the tools they need to be the best parents they can be.
Thirty-seven agencies offer services on-site to provide a one-stop opportunity for parents. Parents come for one service or class and return for others.
The center is located at 109 N. Kentucky Ave in Lakeland, above the Explorations V Children’s Museum.
There are daily school readiness classes in the model classroom. Other current classes include “Great Beginnings,” “Once Upon a Time,” “Twogether Time,” and “Let’s Move Twogether.” Family Fundamentals has a parent resource room, children’s library, playroom, computer access, and adult classrooms/meeting rooms. Partners provide evaluations, counseling, casework, and many other services.
Family Fundamentals is in its 20th year and on track to receive over 29,000 visitors this year!
