Menlo Park Missions
Our mission is to empower the Hispanic community by providing avenues for community organizations and caring adults to participate in activities that promote family literacy, family advocacy, and projects that serve Hispanic families in Redwood City. We do this by offering English as a Second Language classes, participating in emergency care for displaced families and leading catalytic events that reach out to the community as well as through neighborhood affinity groups that equip families to experience by other caring adults. Our premier offering is Redwood City Reads, where we match caring volunteers with children for 1/1 reading on local Redwood City School campuses, homes, or at the local library. Here are some specific ways you or your Life Group can get involved:
