Earlier this month, Fatima Family Center's child care program received a 5-star rating from Step Up to Quality (SUTQ), the quality rating and improvement system administered by Ohio's Department of Education and Department of Job and Family Services.
SUTQ's rating system recognizes preschool and school-age programs that exceed minimum health and safety licensing regulations. Not only is this new rating a mark of excellence for Fatima Family Center, but it is also important for Catholic Charities as a whole, as this rating brings all of the organization's child care sites to a 5-star level.
Fatima Family Center is located in Cleveland's Hough neighborhood and serves the community by providing events, recreational and educational opportunities, and supportive services for youth, families, adults and seniors. In 2002, Fatima was recognized by the Annie E. Casey Foundation as one of the top five family centers in the United States.
