Family Resource Center

(Located upstairs facing Allston Way, across from the elevator shaft)

We serve the families of the Rosa Parks community by providing educational, health and social service resources. We are building a “school that is more than a school” so that all kids are able to come to school ready to learn.

The Family Resource Center supports families at Rosa Parks by providing:
