President's Message


Dear Friends and Supporters,

Since its inception in 1971, Family Central, Inc. has always remained committed to promoting high quality early care and education for Florida’s children.  This historic commitment is especially vital as research into brain development concludes that the first five years of life establish much of a child's intellectual, emotional and psychological well being.  By investing in our young children we are preventing expensive social dysfunction which would require greater costs to remediate. 

We are especially pleased with our role in sponsoring efforts to promote school readiness, parent education, teacher training, quality early care and education, and family support.  It is imperative now more than ever to get involved, contact your local Legislator and be an advocate for early care and education.  Our children are counting on us to be their voice, and we must ensure that each one of them has a fair start in life.  Your support through donations, fund-raising activities and corporate sponsorships volunteering, allows us to continue serving our children.  Our goal is to make a positive difference in our community.

Lastly, I would like to thank all our volunteers, our board of directors, our founders, and the many community partners who collaborate with us in serving the families of South Florida.

We are all in this together! 

Barbara-Ann Weinstein, Ed.D
