The Tigard-Tualatin Family Resource Center serves families living within the boundaries of the Tigard-Tualatin School District. Center staff help families navigate the social service system so they can gain access to the community resources they need. Basic needs items are available on an emergency basis. The availability of these items depends on both cash and in-kind donations from generous community partners and individuals.
"The Family Resource Center is viewed as a model for assuring families feel comfortable seeking the kinds of information, resources, and support services that all citizens need at various times. It provides service by acting as a connection point for families seeking information, referrals, and on-site social services. It supports families that struggle every day to provide for basic needs such as food, clothing, dental, medical, and mental health needs."
