The mission of Franklin Vance Warren is to utilize resources to engage, assist, empower and ultimately improve the lives of anyone and everyone in the community at large. We offer programs to serve ALL ages and will do all we can to direct you to a resource that you are looking for and even offer some that you did not realize that you need! 

From STUDENT SERVICES to NUTRITION  to UTILITIES and beyond, take a look at our Community Resource page to learn all about what is available. 

And as always, we are open to suggestions and ideas of other resources that are available the WE aren't aware of - contact us and share and we will be glad to add that information to our Resource Page!

Man in the Mirror

Head Start/Early Head Start is all about parent engagement. This year we were intentional in our efforts to bring as many male figures that are present in our HS/EHS children's lives to the table. On Thursday, November 16th we had 65 men - Fathers, Grandfathers, Great Grandfathers, Uncles - show up to our Man in the Mirror meeting. These men poured into each other and so much information was shared

A special thanks to our CEO Dr. Abdul Sm Rasheed for spearheading this amazing event.

We all look forward to the next meeting!
