Family Resource Centers: A Critical Partner in Building a System of Comprehensive Supports
Children need stability in their lives at home in order to do their best in school. Research is clear, academic resources alone cannot compensate when children have unmet basic needs or their families are in crisis. There are family resource centers (FRCs) across the state offering families comprehensive support. As school districts work to build comprehensive support services for students and their families, especially to meet the LCFF priority outcomes, FRCs can be indispensable partners. Come learn what FRCs have to offer and how to build an effective partnership. What do FRCs typically offer families? How can FRCs help with early intervention and case management? How can FRCs help with students experiencing homelessness? How does this fit in LCFF planning and budgeting? Participants will get to hear discussion on FRCs to answer these questions and more.
