Family Resource Center's Family Liaisons
The Family Liaison in every school works with families to help students access non-academic support services so they can attend school ready to learn. Liaisons identify students in need and help them to secure community resources to meet their needs. Health insurance, utility assistance, food, counseling and vision exams are just a few examples. Liaisons also help to enroll new students, to translate and interpret, plan and lead parent nights. Family Services Department is a proud member of the Family Resource Center Association.
