Los Angeles Community College District Trustee Andra Hoffman, LAVC President Dr. Erika Endrijonas, Dr. Doug Marriott, and Marni Roosevelt and Amber Angel, of the Family Resource Center, were invited to present at the Women in Leadership Higher Education Conference at the Harvard Faculty Club.
Their presentation highlighted the Family Resource Center and Strengthening Working Families as national models of holistic family support. Under the leadership of Trustee Hoffman and Dr. Endrijonas, both programs have helped change the paradigm for student and workforce training participants in higher education.
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.
