Family Service Workers
Each site has Family Service Workers on staff that work to connect families with community resources. They meet with families one-on-one to find out if there are any needs, share resources, and set goals. They can help parents find their local food pantry, get clothes from a church, or sign up for GED or English classes in their community. If a child needs a doctor or help finding a dentist, the Family service worker can help the family find medical care. Monthly Parent Meetings provide ongoing trainings and support to families on a variety of topics. Family Service Workers are there to support the family as a whole with any needs, so the child can ultimately succeed in school.
