About enFAMILIA, INC.

HISTORY OF enFAMILIA

Over 16 years of educational and support programs


enFAMILIA’s mission is to promote healthy family relationships and to
enrich the quality of life through education and the arts.

enFAMILIA, Inc. was incorporated in September of 2000 to provide educational programs to help improve and preserve family life for a large population of migrant farm workers and low-income families living in Deep South Miami-Dade County.  This area includes Homestead, Florida City, Leisure City and Naranja.  The community in Deep South Dade is characterized by factors such as poverty, low education, discrimination, cultural prejudices and immigration laws, all of which have contributed to some of the social problems enFAMILIA addresses. In addition, teen pregnancy and lack of teen parenting skills are, unfortunately, common in this community.

Carlos E. Salgado, MFA and Rocio Tafur-Salgado, MS, CFLE, founders and directors of enFAMILIA, Inc. both hold Master-level degrees and have extensive experience working with migrant and low-income families. They combined field experiences and formal education to create the enFAMILIA Center to provide programs and services that address the unique needs of families in South Dade.

Throughout the past sixteen years, enFAMILIA developed the following curricula:

  • Couples and Marriage Enrichment Program
  • Parenting skills
  • Fathers as Role Models and Children’s Heroes
  • Personal and Interpersonal Enrichment Between Mothers and Daughters
  • Yo Soy Papa (I am a Father)
  • Educational Support Program for Parents and Children
