Mission Statement

Provides educational services beyond the classroom to help students succeed from second grade through college and career.


For Love of Children is always in need of goods and services. Receiving these donations allows FLOC to spend our limited resources on serving more children and families.


Nearly half of DC students perform below grade level in reading and math. YOU can change that! There are many ways that you can make a significant difference in the lives of DC children.


Enroll a student in FLOC’s programs for 2019-2020 school year. Please contact Tanya Magana, Bilingual Recruitment and Outreach Coordinator, at tmagana@floc.org or 202-349-3514, with any questions.
