Welcome to the Imani Family Center, where we believe in the transformative power of education and community. Since our founding in May 2001 in Cincinnati, Ohio, we’ve been dedicated to creating sustainable programs that build a foundation of faith and success for students and families. Our tailored after-school initiatives at Rothenberg Preparatory Academy and Woodford Paideia Elementary Schools provide academic enrichment, arts, fitness, nutrition education, and social-emotional development. With the support of the Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant and our 19 committed partners, we offer a comprehensive and personalized approach to empower students to excel academically and personally.
