About Us


We love Dubuque. This is our City and there’s nowhere on earth we’d rather be.

We especially love the diversity that can be found everywhere you turn. To help build unity out of this diversity, the Multicultural Family Center (MFC) partners with many individuals and organizations to form a solid foundation of understanding and collaboration across racial, ethnic, age and socioeconomic groups.

Everything we do points to the ultimate goal: a greater level of inclusivity, engagement and harmony that will give everyone who lives here one more reason to love this city.


Building unity out of diversity is an ambitious goal. To help make it a reality, we’re always looking for new ways to empower families and community members to reach their full potential.

No matter who you are, you’re accepted and respected here.

It’s all part of our effort to be a destination and model for multicultural learning in the Dubuque community.

Many culturally distinct groups and nonprofit organizations come here to find a welcoming space and stimulating environment for their unique programs and one-of-a-kind events.

As a result, no two days at the MFC are ever exactly alike. We host events that showcase Dubuque’s diversity, celebrate culturally significant days and provide unique programming that promotes long-term learning by teaching culturally distinct content. These events help forward our goal of modeling and facilitating multicultural learning in the Dubuque community.

The Multicultural Family Center empowers all families and community members of Dubuque to reach their potential and build unity through diversity, equity, and inclusion.
The Multicultural Family Center envisions an equitable and inclusive Dubuque built on a foundation of understanding and collaboration across all cultural groups committed to producing engaged families and community members. The Center serves as an inviting and safe place for community members, stimulates connections, and provides programs to foster civic engagement and social and economic success.
