The Fatima Family Center honored long-term supporters during its 50th year celebration on Thursday, May 18th.
Fatima was originally established in 1973 as a pastoral counseling and outreach ministry of Our Lady of Fatima parish. In 2000, Catholic Charities developed a 26,000-square-foot facility that anchors the Hough community.
Two years after, the Annie E. Casey Foundation recognized Fatima as one of the top five family centers in the United States.
The center offers programs and services for people of all ages such as after-school programs, summer camps, silver threads senior program, teen leadership, and more!
This celebration included lunch, music by the silver threads choir, and presentations from Director of Fatima LaJean Ray, Ward 7 Councilwoman Stephanie Howse, County Council Yvonne Conwell, Retired Chief of Police Calvin Williams, Former Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, and more!
Lunch was provided by The Executive Grille, a culinary arts program for students in grades 10-12 to develop skills in a professional kitchen. These students operate both the front and back of house of their restaurant and food truck located in Cleveland!
Congratulations to the Fatima Family Center on 50 years!
