Hello Everyone,
We want to welcome you to the 2018 Imani Fest!


Members of the Imani Family Center Board wanted to create an annual event that would bring all of our partners, students and supporters of the community together and bring in the new school year with great enthusiasm. That summer of 2011, the Imani Fest born. Each year more and more people want to participate and help prepare our children for an awesome school year. And now we are ready for another exciting festival as we continue to grow and get bigger.
Do you know?
Imani (E-MAH-NE) means “FAITH” : To believe with all our heart in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders.
