What Is A Student Family Resource Coordinator?
The Student Family Resource Coordinator is available for all students/Learning Coaches in K-12 to assist with referrals for resources and added support.
We are here to motivate and see what is preventing your student from succeeding in school, so don’t wait for failing grades, reach out to your student’s teacher and let them know you need some extra support!
The SFRC is available to help your student who may struggle with many social issues or family situations. But the SFRC is not just available for the student but to support the Learning Coach as well.
School has its own challenges, and we know how important it is for students to have the support they need to be successful.

What if my student is seeing a private counselor?
The SFRC is not a replacement for your current therapist/counselor but added support as part of our OVCA team.
The SFRC can work with your student’s teachers to support and advocate for your student if they are struggling with anxiety/depression or any mental illness and it’s interfering with their schooling.
Confidentiality between the student/LC and SFRC is assured, with the usual acceptation of reports of abuse or self-harm.
