Our services have never been more relevant or timely. With the all the changes in education and how it is being delivered during the COVID-19 crisis, parents are overwhelmed and working hard to understand the education options and resources available to them. Since we've launched a dynamic COVID-19 resource page our website traffic is up 1775%. Our callers and team are reaching to thousands of parents weekly to serve them as they navigate this very uncertain time.
Currently, Families Empowered is serving over 90,000 families across three cities in Texas (Austin, Houston, and San Antonio) who are actively looking for schools. 85% are families of color, and 66% have a household income less than $50,000.
Families Empowered is working currently remotely to serve our families who are affected by quarantines and school closures. We are updating our FREE online resource daily and working to ensure that we provide parents with the most up to date COVID-19 school closures, educational resources, on-line resources and community resources. Families Empowered is the only organization in Texas that has a bilingual call center focused on finding schools and educational resources. We proactively contact families to assess their needs and direct them to resources available. All of our services are in Spanish and English.
