Family Resource Centers
The Fort Worth ISD Family Resource Centers (FRC) and Family Action Center provide helpful behavioral health services and mental health care to Fort Worth ISD students and their families. We work in partnership with the mental health community of Tarrant County to provide friendly and knowledgeable care that addresses the special needs of each student.
We recognize the connection between physical, social, and emotional health and a child's ability to learn. The school-based FRC’s represent an essential plan toward working with families in need and improving the lives of children, thereby improving their ability to succeed academically.
The FRC staff provides valuable community resource assistance beyond behavioral health needs, such as Medicaid, food, clothing assistance and more. The FRC counseling staff will work with you to make sure that agency services are accessible to you. We are here to answer your questions and to assist you with the following services;
- Individual, Family and Group Counseling
- Psychiatric and Psychological Evaluation
- Parent Education and Workshops
- Basic needs and community resource assistance
Family Resource services are available virtually, either by telephone or telehealth. We continue to stay updated with what our partner agency’s services are and will assist families with finding the right provider. To take advantage of our services, and speak with a counselor, please click on the 'Make a Referral' button or call and leave a voicemail at 817-814-2870. We will return the call as soon as possible.
