The Northeast Family Resource Center is open daily for families to walk-in, but also reaches out through family surveys sent to all Northeast parents. While families may come with immediate crises, such as evictions, illness, or job loss, the goal of the FRC is to get families on the road to long-term stabilization.
Each family is assessed in five key areas: housing, employment/finances, access to healthcare, education, and family/social connections.
The primary goal of the Austin ISD Family Resource Centers is to provide support, resources, and leadership opportunities that promote well-being, self-sufficiency, and the engagement of family members in our public schools.
Families and community members from any school may receive assistance and support from the Family Resource Centers.
