GLIDE Families Create Community

GLIDE’s Family Resource Center (FRC) offers a variety of culturally appropriate family-oriented programs that give parents the tools they need to support their child’s development. Programs include family-focused activities that promote school readiness and success, build community through parent and family classes, workshops and events. The FRC also offers long-term support to families, creating deep and lasting relationships. Through the FRC, parents and kids receive information and support around literacy, nutrition, community resources, family tutoring, case management, and basic needs assistance.

There is an added benefit for families engaged with the FRC. FRC Coordinator, Theresa Calderon, shares, “Families work hard and often don’t have time for much else. They can connect with other families here, bringing them out of isolation.” This sense of community among parents is seen at FRC workshops ranging from a Cantonese Language Parents group to a Cooking and Nutrition class series hosted by GLIDE’s Daily Free Meals Program.
