A hidden gem in the Marana District is the Family Resource Center (FRC). Dedicated to helping people help themselves, the FRC provides solutions to many challenges facing students and their families. The FRC provides a range of services, food, clothing, basic home and school necessities, and more through collaborative partnerships, grants, and donations. Throughout the year, special events, continuing education, and special activities for families are also offered through the FRC.

“The MUSD Family Resource Center provides services and programs to our students and their families to take away the barriers that prevent children from attending school and to support them to succeed,” said Jackie Franco, Student and Family Support Services Coordinator.
