Edgewood/Brookland Family Support Collaborative

E/BFSC is one of five neighborhood-based Collaboratives in the District of Columbia, which make up the city-wide Healthy Families, Thriving Communities Collaborative network. E/BFSC has been in existence since 1996 when a partnership consisting of residents and neighborhood-based organizations received a planning grant from the D.C. Child and Family Services Agency (CFSA). The planning grant facilitated the development of a community-based collaborative effort to design and implement a neighborhood-based family support system. After a year of planning, E/BFSC opened its first Family Support Center in Brookland Manor in 1997 and began formally serving families. In 2011, E/BFSC expanded its geographic target area and now provides services to all communities in Ward 5 and Ward 6.
