What is the Allen County Family Resource Center?
Family Resource Centers are part of the Kentucky Education Reform Act. At the Allen County Center, we believe that it is extremely difficult for children to do well in school when faced with the problems of society.
In our center, we help our children and our families by building a relationship with them. We then build on our level of trust and bridge the gap between our families, schools and community agencies.
