Mission: The Family Life Council was begun in 1968 by a group of citizens, made up of community leaders from education, religious, health, and civic groups, who saw the need for programs that would prevent the need for costly intervention programs. The parents and professionals began implementing education programs on child development and family life. Early grants helped underwrite the Good Beginnings program for first-time parents, a program designed and implemented entirely by volunteers. In 1971, the United Way began funding the agency; in 1981, urged the Greensboro Advocates for Children and Youth program to merge with the Family Life Council.

Good Day, My name is Earlene Trott. During this time of this pandemic, I'm sure we are all reflecting, and some are reconnecting. I was reflecting my past with my youngest child going through pictures of my past. I just wanted to say Thank You. I was a participant in the Good Beginnings for Teen Parents program in 1989. I didn't know what I was going to do with my life. I just thought I was going to get a job somewhere and just work. I didn't know I could go to college without having a 3.0GPA. Until I attended your sessions. I would like to thank you and the gentleman that spoke to our group at one of our sessions. He said that "we should do whatever we love to do. "" Every day may not be good, but you should love what you do, and be really good at it." I held on to those words in the back of my mind. I really didn't think much about those words, until later in life. I started out as an unemployed parent of 2 atr 19. Your program sponsored me to take a typing class and gave me a part-time position in your office. Life intervened and I didn't finish. Well, I am now Architect for NASA. Thank you.
