Communities are built on strong families.

Communities can thrive only if the families who live there are supported and safe. Through the Heights Suburban Collaborative, we provide services for the well-being of our communities’ children. Our Fathers and Families Together (FAFT) program provides men with tools to help them be caring, committed, and responsible fathers.
