Family Resource Center (FRC)
The Family Resource Center is located at 1014 Brighton Avenue, El Centro, across the street from Central Union High School. The Family Resource Center integrates a variety of resources for CUHSD students and families. We assist students and families by referring them to local community resources. With the collaboration of many agencies, the Family Resource Center ensures the education, health, and well-being of students and their families, increasing the likelihood of student success.
The Family Resource Center is here to provide support and referral services as the need arises. Our goal is to assist students and families with linkage to community resources as well as to provide services directly out of our facility.
