For the past 8 years, FACES has been dedicated to ensuring that our community's low-income families who need us most, have greater access to quality programs and services that will enhance their lives and shape their futures. Our organization had served more than 500 families were parents and students grades PreK-12 have benefitted. Our organization focuses on education services where the whole family participates and child and adult are treated as a whole. A whole child approach, which ensures that each student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged, sets the standard for comprehensive, sustainable school improvement and provides for long-term student success.
We are celebrating our first year in our Summer St. building; we opened our doors in September 2015, in order to provide Preschool and Daycare Services. Our program is a full time, Dual Language Immersion Preschool, with a very advanced literacy and math curriculum, daily nutrition and P.E. classes and music classes once a week. Our preschool teachers hold a teaching degree and many years of experience.
OUR mission is to unlock the potential of the people of Oregon, building and sustaining healthy communities through education opportunities, promoting empowerment of parents and students and respect for cultural diversity and grass roots.
How we got here...
In the past twelve years, Oregon has seen an increase migration of families from various countries, including Mexico, Russia, Samoa, Armenia, among others. Unfortunately, a considerable number of these migrant families have limited to no basic education and have scarce resources. In order to assist the Oregon public school system in the face of diminishing resources and help the community, F.A.C.E.S. of America, it's partners, sponsors, and private donors strive to provide education programs, basic skills training, parenting education, mentoring, health access and integration orientation to these under-serve members of the community. F.A.C.E.S. of America empowers parents to obtain the necessary tools to support their children in their education journey.
