This rating was published 03/01/2020 and includes data from FY2019, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Founded in 1993, Forty Carrots Family Center (FCFC) is a nonprofit organization guided by a vision that all parents will provide their children with experiences and environments that are emotionally and physically safe so that they can grow into capable and caring
young people. Forty Carrots programs are shaped by the philosophical belief that all parents-regardless of socioeconomic status, educational background, race, age or other factors-deserve access to information, education, and support in order to do the best
possible job raising their children. Since its inception, formal partnerships have defined Forty Carrots' programs and remain key to its success, with 23 formal partner collaborations across 32 service locations. Forty Carrots' specialized expertise fills a void for partnering agencies as they focus on their mission (such as a drug-free birth or secure and stable housing).
