Welcome to our Family-Community Resource Center!


Learning 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.

Call us today at 360-313-3074 or stop by our center. We are here to help.
