Family Connections knows that a healthy, positive family dynamic is key to a child’s success. That is why Family Connections is a family learning community focused on discovery and growth for children and their parents/caregivers. What began in 1993 as a grassroots effort modeled on co-op preschools has evolved into a uniquely comprehensive, bi-lingual, parent-child education center in which parents and children attend programs together, learn together, and grow together – from cradle to college. With operations in East Palo Alto, East Menlo Park, and Redwood City , the organization serves approximately 600 individuals per year. There are currently eight full-time, and eight part-time staff with an annual operating budget of approximately $1.5M. Of that, approximately 55% is received from individual gifts and annual special events, 35% from government grants and contracts, and 10% from foundations.

Family Connections seeks to deepen its impact with the children and families it serves and increase the scale of its work, and has identified ambitious but attainable goals. To that end, they are seeking an Executive Director who is a skilled fundraiser with strategic and organization sensibilities to provide leadership and rigor to make substantial progress toward achieving their goals.
