How you help Volunteers make up a key part of the Mar Vista Family Center (MVFC) family, offering their time and energy to make a difference in the lives of families and the MVFC community.
About us The Mar Vista Family Center (MVFC) operates on a sustainable and cooperative model through which families remain involved with the Center across generations from early childhood all the way through adulthood. MVFC currently operates within three main program areas: Early Childhood Education, Youth, and Community. These three program areas complement each other in a whole-family process, with age- and status-appropriate activities for all family members. Through its unique Shared Responsibility Curriculum Model, MVFC has helped transform a community once filled with urban gang violence and unsafe streets into a thriving, healthy community — and given its residents a safe space in which to learn, grow, and lead.
