Welcome to Our Site


Embry Center for Family Life is a small organization born out of the work initiated by the Embry A.M.E. Church over the years. During our work in the community we noted that there were significant gaps in the resources provided to our community. The Center was incorporated in October 2011 and received 501 C3 status from the IRS in April 2012. Thus far, the Center has been engaged in student advocacy, parent training,

assisting in job development, and sponsoring the Lakeland All-Stars Basketball team.
