Family Matters

Family Matters partners with youth and families in the North of Howard neighborhood to address and overcome structural racism and systemic oppression to build an equitable society. This mission is advanced through our Youth Development programs—offering project-based experiential learning, individualized attention for diverse learners, and ongoing social and emotional mentoring support for youth ages 7 – 19. The organization harnesses the insight, passion, and creativity that youth bring to address systemic issues in their own community.
