Family First is the heart of all non-profits. This organization provides endless opportunities for today’s youth in various sectors. My middle school children had the honor of participating in a financial literacy camp during the summer. These life skills are normally taught in college, Family First understands the importance of early preparation for a successful future. This is just one impactful example of the extraordinary work these angels offer for our youth. Big THANK YOU!!!

From their 2 week financial summer camp in 2019 our kids now seem to know more about finances, compounding Interest, real cost of home ownership than we do.

Our kids have been involved with their programs for the last three years and everyone of them is determined and committed to attending college.

From CA State Treasurer John Chiang to SuperBowl Champions like James Washington sharing ‘ it’s not how you start in life, but how you finish’ the life lessons and motivation shattering is very powerful .

Thank you FFF

I have attended several Family First sporting events over the years and enjoyed each one thoroughly. What’s stands out most is the guest speakers they have had like Treasurer Chiang and former UCLA Bruin James Washington. Each speech centered around education and resonated deeply with my children. Keep up the great work, Family First. You are an asset to the community.

The Family First Foundation has offered terrific opportunities for youth to be actively engaged and attend community events. They are inspiring youth to look toward the future and offering opportunities for families in which many would not be able to attend on their own.

Thank you for all you do for our community!

Family first works hard in inspiring our youth to reach for higher goals and education by having speakers speak to our youth and us parents that if you have drive anything is possible, when it feels and looks impossible. Family First has given us the opportunity to share great sporting events with our dear friends and family that we would never have otherwise. It makes our community stronger and the experiences long lived in our hearts and memory.

Thank you for all you do Family First!

Family First has been incredible for our community. From the numerous opportunities for children in areas of STEM, Athletics, Arts, and so much more, this non-profit has created opportunities where few had existed for some of the most needy students in our community. The foundation has been instrumental in accelerating growth for these students and for creating partnerships with schools and business to maximize opportunity. I recommend this organization wholeheartedly.

We felt extremely lucky to be invited into the FFF rolls and our kids were enthralled by CA State Treasurer John Chiangs courageous sharing of his family's humble beginnings at the Foundations Family Adventure Nights at the Rosebowl.

Our kids both signed 'I am Going to College' pledges and the take-home book on how to be an academic all-star is now the family educational bible.
Thank you to all the awesome FFF staff and friends.

I've been involved in a number of nonprofit organizations. What Foundation For Family does to motivate a lot of young people is amazing. They bring these young people to exciting family events and then they bring role model speakers to talk about their personal and professional stories that are so motivating. Every young person should participate in some, if not, all of their events! Val

I have benefited from at least two programs of the Family First Foundation and appreciate everything they do to promote the enthusiasm of the young people to pursue their college education. Their programs promote the strengthening of the unity in the family, offering occasions for parents and their children to participate together in fun and wholesome events in sports and entertainment. They also have speakers who themselves serve as inspiration to the young people to be better themselves and pursue worthwhile goals in their life. I would be checking on their activities to see how else I will participate. R.D.Antonio
