Family-Community Resource CentersLearning can be difficult when students’ basic needs aren’t met. The goal of Family-Community Resource Centers is to help all children succeed, and we do that by removing barriers and connecting families with available community resources.

Help can come in many forms: anything from student homework help and school supplies to health services and dental care, clothing, food, emergency housing, job assistance, early childhood education, assistance with GED preparation and more.

Help is easy to find by contacting or visiting any of our FCRC locations, located in several schools throughout the district, or our mobile FCRC.
