The Rowland Unified School District Family Resource Center (FRC) opened its doors at Northam Elementary School in La Puente, California in 1996. This site at Northam was chosen because it was adjacent to the Children's Clinic, which was founded in 1974 to provide dental and later medical services to the families in the community. The FRC was originally established as part of a Healthy Start Grant. FRC staff serves Rowland U.S.D. students and families with dignity, compassion, understanding with the goal of eliminating barriers to school success. Services include supporting improved access to health, dental services, preventive health care, group and individual counseling, nutrition, alternatives to gang involvement, preventing violence, improving communication between school and community, and empowering parents. All work is done in collaboration with numerous agencies such as Pacific Clinics, ENKI Health and Research Systems, Options Preschools/After School Care, Rowland Heights Library, La Puente Public Library, East Valley Community Health Center, L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept., Lion's Club Vision Care Program, Rotary, California Highway Patrol, PTA, Children's Bureau of Southern California, American Cancer Society, Red Cross, Costco, Rowland Adult Education, Shoes that Fit Program, Mt. SAC Community College REACH program, SSG Children's Dental Outreach, Project Access, GEM, Foothill Family Services, Kiwanis, Rowland Heights Senior Pathfinders, Herald Christian Health Center, and many more. Additionally, we continually add new services and revise existing ones to better service children and families. 'Like' us on Facebook: Family Resource Center/RUSD Follow us on Twitter: RowlandUSDFRC.
