Family Resource and Youth Services Centers

Family Resource and Youth Services Centers (FRYSCs) help WVISD families solve problems and overcome barriers to learning. Family Resource Centers (FRCs) serve elementary schools. Youth Services Centers (YSCs) serve middle and high schools. The programs were created as part of the Kentucky Education Reform Act (KERA). The intent of the center is to enhance students' abilities to succeed in school by assisting children, youth and families in meeting some of their basic needs. This will be done by providing community services at the centers or by linking families to agencies in their communities.
