The Sanger Family Resource Center (FRC) is located on the campus of Jefferson Elementary School in Sanger and is operated by Comprehensive Youth Services (CYS) in partnership with Sanger Unified School District. The mission of the Sanger FRC is to unite with community members to offer linkages, information, services, parent education and advocacy to residents of Sanger and surrounding communities. It is our vision that everyone in Sanger and the surrounding communities will have a safe and nurturing home, an opportunity for an excellent education, and a brighter future.
In order to support the goal of strengthening family resilience and nurturing the development of healthy behaviors as a means of preventing child abuse and neglect, the Sanger Family Resource Center embraces the Strengthening Families framework developed by the Center for the Study of Social Policy. The foundation of this framework are the evidence-based Five Protective Factors, which are designed to help ensure that parents have the resources, support, and tools they need to parent effectively, even when under stress.
