Roberts Family Development Center (RFDC) began providing academic enrichment services in 2001, serving 13 students in North Sacramento.  Since then, we have grown to provide academic wrap-around services for over 500 students, their families, and their communities.  Our programs are primarily held at 7 sites in high risk neighborhoods throughout the Greater Sacramento area.  Our services are focused on serving low-income families who struggle to secure quality care and academic support for their children.  Students in these economically challenged families often struggle to keep up academically during the school year, leading to the achievement gap.  This achievement gap is compounded by summer learning loss, putting them farther and farther behind with each passing year.  Without support, children in these families often become trapped in a multigenerational cycle of poor life outcomes including poverty, lack of education, involvement with law enforcement, chronic health conditions, prolonged stress, etc.
