The Family Resource Centers have been designed with the intent of meeting the needs of children, youth, and their families; thus enhancing students' abilities to succeed in school. This will be done by linking families to existing agencies in the community from both the public and private sector. Our overall goal is to develop a system of networking community resources in order to help solve the problems of needy students and their families so that at-risk students are less likely to fail or drop out of school.
Who Can Use a Family Resource of Youth Service Center?
Once a center has been established, all children, youth, and their families become eligible to receive services. Those children in greatest need will be given priority. Family Resource Centers are located in or near elementary schools and serve children ages 2-12.
