Envisioning stronger, socioeconomically connected communities.

What is the FCC?

The Foundation for Connecting Communities connects minority, immigrant, and low-income families (mentees) to community socio-economic resources and educational opportunities. Well-established families (mentors) play a vital role in this process. FCC has established programs aimed at building strong families.
Currently, FCC is actively involved in:
1. SMILE2 (Supporting Minorities, Immigrants, and Low-income through Educational Empowerment) program.
2. Parenting Education to Activate Calm and Empowerment (PEACE at Home) program.
3. Family-to-Family Mentorship program.


The Foundation for Connecting Communities strives to become an entity promoting stronger socioeconomically connected communities.


We aspire to create environment where well-established families have opportunities to help minority, immigrant, and low-income households in their process to become self-sufficient.


FCC exists to connect Minority, Immigrant, and Low-income families to socioeconomic and educational resources to improve their economic self-reliance.


We aim at economic self-sufficiency for  Minority, Immigrant, & Low-income families, long-term impactful and memorable relationships between them and support providers.
