El Monte Promise Foundation understands that parents and family members play a vital role in preparing children for success in their future. From the earliest ages, families serve as caretakers, a support network, and mentors that enable children to reach their highest potential.
EMPF is committed to empowering parents and family members as a child’s most influential teacher and helping them guide their children from cradle to college and beyond.
