Carson Family Resource Center


The Carson Family Resource Center was established in 1993 as the result of a three-year Healthy Start operational grant awarded to the sponsoring Carson Coordinating Council by the California State Department of Education. The mission of the Carson Family Resource Center is to support the instructional program of LAUSD schools in the City of Carson and to address barriers to learning though the development of a coordinated system of care for students and families.

The School-based Carson Child Guidance Program and the Carson Family Resource Center have partnered to provide an integrated service delivery system for families. The Carson Child Guidance Program provides direct services to students and families, crisis intervention, group support and teacher consultation. The Carson Family Resource Center provides specialized programming to support the direct services component. The programming includes parent education raining such as case management and collaborative development.


Staff members from the Carson Family Resource Center participate with the Carson Police Agencies and Schools for Safety Collaborative, the LAUSD District 8 Resource Coordinating Council and the Carson Youth Accountability Network. These are community partnerships among Carson Coordinating Council, City of Carson, California State University, Dominquez Hill, LAUSD, Carson Sheriff’s Station and other community based organizations. These collaboratives are committed to strengthening family life through enhanced interagency and interschool coordination and to developing additional resources or services based on community needs.
