Achievement Centers for Children & Families

Unlocking Potential:

Building Stronger Communities for Children and Families

Igniting Potential

Achievement Centers has offered essential childcare and educational opportunities in southern Palm Beach County since 1969. We are dedicated to empowering families facing financial challenges, providing affordable access to vital early learning, out-of-school, summer camp, teen, and family support programs. Together, we build a foundation for academic achievement, financial stability, and lifelong success for the children and families that we serve.

Creating Opportunities

Each year we serve 700+ children, ages 1-18, and their families Monday through Friday on three campuses. Our programs are transformational; improving school readiness, combating food insecurity, and preventing the summer learning slide. We afford opportunities for under-resourced children to become competitive with their peers and have the same chance to achieve beneficial outcomes for their lives.

Inspiring Wellness

Empowering Families for a Brighter Future; Our Family Support Program provides essential health, wellness, and parenting support, along with financial literacy and lifestyle management. We also offer case management and emergency services to families in need, working hand in hand with our community partners to deliver comprehensive therapeutic care. Together, we work with the parents to provide the tools and resources needed to foster children’s development and reduce mental health risks.

Achievement Centers for Children & Families has a long-standing history of serving Palm Beach County’s children & families since 1969.

Our goal as a nonprofit organization is to provide affordable quality child care for children ages 1-18. Our programs are designed to meet a child’s academic, social, emotional, and physical needs. We offer early learning, out-of-school, summer camp, teen, and family support programs.
