Family Resource and Youth Services Center (FRYSC)


What are Family Resource and Youth Services Centers?

Family Resource and Youth Services Centers have been created as part of the Kentucky Education Reform Act. The intent of the centers is to enhance student's abilities to succeed in school by assisting children, youth and families in meeting some of their basic needs. This will be done by providing community services at the centers or by linking families to agencies in their basic needs. This will be done by providing community services at the centers or by linking families to agencies in their communities. Family Resource or Youth Services Centers are developed by single schools or groups of schools that have at least 20% of their students eligible to receive free school meals.

Who can use Family Resource Youth Services Center?

Centers receive a state grant based on the number of students eligible for free school meals. However, once a center has been established all children and youth (and their families) enrolled in the school or schools that developed the center can use its services, regardless of the income of their families. Services will be especially beneficial for those youngsters who are at risk of not performing well in school.
