School-based Family Resource Centers
United Way’s network of School-based Family Resources centers works with schools to handle problems outside the classroom so teachers can teach in the classroom. Last year alone, over 1,700 students received services from 6 family resource centers in schools across Nashville.
Residents of at-risk neighborhoods face multiple barriers to being able to lead stable, healthy and productive lives. Some of these barriers are high poverty rates, high rates of unemployment and under-employment, low academic achievement and high levels of crime, teen pregnancy, single-parent households and rent burden.
