FAMILY SERVICE CENTER

The Family Service Center (FSC) of the Blaine School District is here to strengthen families and students by helping them with basic needs and linking them to local resources. Created in 1997 through a Readiness To Learn grant, the Blaine Family Service Center is directed by a mission to link human services, education, and local resources in support of healthy families, safe environments, and the realization of children’s potential. 

The FSC is a safe place where families can access information and available services including:

  • Basic needs, such as food, clothing and housing

  • McKinney Vento/Homelessness

  • School supplies

  • Energy assistance

  • GED and ELL classes

  • Family literacy

  • Domestic violence resources

  • Medicaid enrollment

If you are in need of more immediate help, please visit our Crisis Resources page.

LINKS TO COMMUNITY RESOURCES 

Oftentimes access to community resources can happen more quickly if you are already approved for the Free and Reduced Lunch Program. It's easy to apply, and all the details are on our Food Services page. Those approved for Free and Reduced Lunch are also eligible for free/reduced ASB cards and participation fees, so Apply Today through Skyward Family Access. Be sure to complete the Consent to Share Form, so schools will know your student is eligible for other savings.

WINTER COAT DRIVE: The Community Assistance Program's annual Winter Coat Drive is underway. Collection was completed in September. For information about free winter clothing for children and adults, click on this link to view the flier or visit the Community Assistance Program website.
