What is a Family Resource Center?

Family Resource Centers were created as part of the Kentucky Education Reform Act. The intent of the centers is to enhance the students' abilities to succeed in school by assisting children and families in meeting some of their basic needs. FRC's provide community services and link families to existing community agencies.

Who can use the Dayton Family Resource Center?

The Dayton FRC provides services to all members of our community, regardless of income. The Dayton FRC serves all children ages preschool through sixth grade and their families. This includes children not yet of school age and those attending private school, as well as the children and families of Lincoln Elementary School. Students and families may visit the center on their own or a teacher, principal, judge, or counselor may suggest a visit.
