About Us

QC Family Focus was launched in July 2003.  It began with a meager 5000 copies published monthly.  It has grown into the largest free monthly publication in the Quad Cities.

QCFF has a weekly television feature. Family Focus Friday airs on WQAD. We also have several radio partnerships that give our advertisers and contributing editors more exposure. When you add our website, Facebook, Twitter and other social media efforts and we have become one of the most recognized companies in the QCA.  No other publication offers, print, radio, television, web and social media to the extent that QC Family Focus does. Plus, QCFF is distributed to EVERY student in approximately 100 area schools, daycare facilities and preschools.

Former Quad City news anchor Mike Mickle and his wife Karen launched the magazine out of their desire to promote what is most important to them: healthy, happy families.  Both will tell you their true passion is family and QC Family Focus is their way of sharing information that is relevant to anyone who values family. From reaching the new moms as they leave the hospital with their newborns to the grandparents who are still actively involved in their grandchildren’s lives, QCFF provides information and entertainment options for our readers in all stages of life.

Mickle Communications is the parent company of QC Family Focus and offers professional high definition videos.  We are the experts in telling your story.  In addition to marketing videos, commercials and social media saturation, we specialize in documentary film making.

Last but not least, we are the owners of QC Jumps and More. The QCA’s most-trusted bounce house delivery business. Our delivery people are carefully-screened. We are the sole provider for bounce houses for all Downtown Davenport events.

We put family first and remain dedicated to tackling topics, issues and questions related to raising healthy, happy children.
