Helping Hands Family Resource Center
Doing “Whatever It Takes”
    Family Resource and Youth Services Centers (FRYSC) were created as an integral part of the Kentucky Education Reform Act to support student success in school.  KERA focused on the need to increase parental involvement and engage community resources to accomplish this goal.  Family Resource and Youth Services Centers were created to coordinate services and develop community partnerships to assist schools in providing an atmosphere that allows all children to learn.     Findings from the first six years of implementation of the FRYSC program show that the Centers are achieving success in meeting the goal of improved school readiness.  Further, a study published by the KY School Boards Association concludes that “schools with Family Resource Centers or Youth Services Centers had greater improvement in KIRIS scores than did schools without centers”.
