at Mothers' Club Family Learning Center
Thank you for joining us for a special night out celebrating
Mothers' Club Family Learning Center
On March 12th, Mothers' Club Family Learning Center hosted its annual celebration of The Power of Two with an intimate dinner for 100 of its closest supporters at Bistro 45 in Pasadena. The evening raised support for the critical education programs and social services Mothers’ Club offers the low-income families it serves each day.
During the evening, Mothers’ Club honored Dr. Celia C. Ayala, the CEO of LAUP. Dr. Ayala is leading the charge to increase access to quality and affordable preschool. LAUP currently partners with Mothers’ Club to provide 37 slots at our center, in addition to funding, rating and raising the level of quality preschool programs throughout Los Angeles County. Since its inception 10 years ago, LAUP has provided preschool to more than 100,000 children, putting them on the road to success for kindergarten and beyond.
A huge proponent of early childhood education, Congresswoman Judy Chu spoke at the Power of Two dinner about the importance of two-generation learning and how it is integral to children’s healthy development and academic success.
Attendees also had the pleasure of hearing from a Mothers’ Club couple: Leticia Garcia and Gerardo Guzman. Both parents have taken advantage of all the opportunities and experiences the agency has to offer. Leticia has learned to be a leader at Mothers’ Club and in her community, and in May will receive her high school diploma from Pasadena City College. Her husband Gerardo shared that he has learned to encourage his children in school and to teach them that education is the key to success. The pair proved that Mothers’ Club impacts the entire family.
