Success Stories

Our members are the heartbeat of the Center for Urban Families.

Their perseverance and accomplishments bring to life the impact of the Center and the support of our partners. Our goal is to equip our members with the resources that empower them to become change agents—able to transform their lives, families, and communities. Everyday, as a member secures full-time employment, a youth is accepted into college, and a couple stabilizes a healthy relationship and home, we are reminded of the hope and promise that lies before them. When our members recognize their potential and realize their dreams, the world becomes a better place.

Our members’ stories are powerful and awe inspiring.

Here are just a few.
