The Imperative to Support Single Mothers in College - Center for American Progress 

"Amber Angel, program coordinator at LAVC’s Family Resource Center, is a single mother of two who, as a student at Los Angeles Valley College, benefited from supports akin to some of those discussed in the IWPR cost-benefit analysis. Today, she is a voice on student parent issues and one of Ascend’s parent advisers."

The Family Resource Center reduces barriers to higher education and jobs through a whole-family approach. We know there are greater opportunities for success when the family unit is strong.We collaborate with on-campus support programs and community agencies that all work to advance positive social, economic, and educational outcomes for our students.
