Garden Grove Unified School District is committed to serving the academic and socio-emotional needs of all students and families. The Family Resource Center (FRC) was launched in August of 2017 to connect families with important community resources from trusted partners.
The Family Resource Center provides an array of resources in areas like health care, homeless education assistance, immigration, legal advocacy, mental health counseling, and more. It is staffed by Case Manger Chela Marin and supported by district community liaisons that speak multiple languages and are trained on serving the district’s diverse student population.
Some of the community partners who will serve families by referrals and visiting office hours at the Family Resource Center, include Buena Clinton Family Resource Center, Boys and Girls Club of Garden Grove, Casa de la Familia, Catholic Charities of Orange County, Lestonnac Free Clinic, the Mexican Consulate, Magnolia Park Family Resource Center, the Orange County Asian and Pacific Islander Community Alliance, World Relief Garden Grove, and many others.
The FRC is partially funded by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Garden Grove. It is located on the district’s Mendenhall Campus, 13611 Clinton Street (Building O) in Garden Grove, adjacent to the Assessment and Registration Center. Call (714) 663-6411 for more information.
