Family Cafe – Together Strong

Enriching our community for tomorrow


About the Family Cafe

The Family Cafe is a virtual meeting place to collaborate and learn from one another with the goal of making a difference in our David Douglas community. This is a safe and trusting learning space to strengthen and empower ourselves as a community by partnering with one another to enhance each child’s educational experience.

The Family Cafe will be held monthly over video meetings and feature a different topic. Sessions are about 45 minutes long.
