Family Purpose



Operation H.E.L.P.

Our organization has always advocated for youth but as we continue to see a disproportionate number of our student struggle academically and get disciplined for their outward displays of frustration, we developed a program to specifically address the needs of this population.  Just as my son’s school experience allowed me to find my purpose, project HELP (helping everyone find purpose) will provide families with an advocate that will develop an individualized and comprehensive support system to assist parents with their efforts to advocate for their students. Our services include terms of 1 academic year, 1 semester or 1 quarter, depending on the needs of the family. We offer support in the areas of parent-teacher conferences, IEP meetings, classrooms observations, weekly student check ins with all involved parties and biweekly grade reviews. Any additional needs or services will be tailored according to the each students’ circumstance.



Family Purpose is an organization who is committed to care for you and your family. Our workshops are particularly valuable for families simply looking to connect or reconnect with each other that have been alienated or distanced due to the challenges and pressures of everyday life.
