Family Resource Centers

The Kentucky Education Reform Act of 1990 created Family Resource and Youth Services Centers as a partnership between the public schools and the Cabinet for Families and Children to provide services to families. The function of the centers is to establish a link between families and the services necessary to meet basic needs and remove barriers to learning. The centers make referrals in the areas of health and social services, employment information and adult education classes, child care services, substance abuse, and family crisis intervention. Nursing services are available at all  schools.

Family Resource centers serve children through twelve years of age. Areas which must be addressed are: preschool child care for children two and three years of age; after school child day care; families in training; parent and child education; support and training for child care providers; and health services or referrals to health services.

Youth Service Centers serve children over twelve years of age. Areas which must be addressed include: referrals to health and social services; employment counseling, training, and placement; summer and part time job development; drug and alcohol abuse counseling; and family crisis and mental health counseling. 

The centers provide a variety of services and access to resources for families, students and the school community.
