Join us in being a catalyst for positive change in the lives of children and their parents.

We’re dedicated to helping children and parents thrive – and we welcome your assistance in making a life-changing difference for families in your community, across the country and around the world. There are lots of ways that you can help sustain and expand the impact of FAST® (Families and Schools Together®).

Evaluations are Essential

With every FAST Cycle that’s run, pre-program and post-program surveys provide essential insights about the challenges that participating families face as well as the impact of FAST. It is a critical part of FAST that helps you understand how your program compares to others across the country, and how you can evolve your program to ensure that families gain all the benefits that FAST is designed to deliver.
