Families Empowered is on a mission to empower families to engage in a marketplace of schools — that is, to understand their school options and choose the right school for their child. We do this by providing families with tools and resources for selecting a school and helping them navigate the application process to get there. We believe that every child should have access to an excellent education, regardless of family income.
