What is this?
Edgewood’s Family Resource Center helps develop partnerships between parents and their childrens’ schools. The Family Resource Center helps build family resiliency by reducing parent stress, connecting parents to schools and each other, and empowering caregivers to be confident in their parenting skills. We offer one-on-one support to help prepare students to achieve in school and provide advocacy and assistance to families to help them get involved in their child’s education.
