Serving in the City

Family Center

The FOL Family Center embodies our motto, “In the City, For the City.” FOL’s first outreach in West Long Beach, the tutoring program, began with one student and now provides tutoring for grades K-5. During the school year, tutoring takes place Tuesdays and Thursdays. The Family Center also serves as the hub of several of our community programs, including Adult English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, youth group activities, science camp, and Kidz Camp (our Vacation Bible School.)

We are always looking for volunteers to serve! Contact Khuloud for info.
