Since its opening, the Multicultural Family Center (MFC) has developed a two-pronged approach to reaching out and addressing the needs that are currently challenging the community. The MFC first prong is to offer programming to any person or persons in the Dubuque community. The second prong at the MFC is community education. The individuals who work and volunteer at the Center bring an incredible wealth of experiences and knowledge regarding diversity issues. Relationships—intergenerational, intercultural, and interracial—are at the core of the MFC's identity.
