I wanted to highlight the Family Resource Center (PVFRC) this month. It is located at the
former Foothills Elementary School at 44th St. and Grovers. Funding for the PVFRC is
largely provided by a grant from First Things First (azftf.gov.). There are many classes,
activities and services offered including the following:
• Food Pantry –a bag of food for a family of four for one week. A referral from a school
nurse or social worker is required
• CPR and First Aid training – Classes are available for groups, individuals and Spanish
speaking families. There is a fee for this class.
• English as a Second Language (ESL) classes – Learn how to speak English
• AHCCCS assistance – a representative from AHCCCS is available on Fridays by
• Sewing Circle –offered to adults and students 3rd grade and older. Sewing machines
are available, bring your own material. This class is free of charge
• Mascot Club –A full summer program as well as district recesses during the school
year for a fee.
• Kith and Kin Project–to strengthen the quality and reliability of childcare provided by
friends and family through support and training.
