Auburn School’s Family Resource & Youth Service Center (FRYSC) has been awarded $100,000 from the GEER II grant. The GEER II grant funds educational support services with a focus on early childhood education and child care, as well as family crisis and mental health counseling. This successful grant was submitted by Auburn School’s FRYSC Director Hope Strode.

“Congratulations to the FRYSCs that have been selected for the second round of GEER II funding,” said Lt. Gov. Jacqueline Coleman, who is also the secretary of the Education and Workforce Development Cabinet. “As an educator and former school administrator, I have witnessed how much our FRYSCs mean to our schools and students. They stand in the gap for the most vulnerable students and connect schools to the home and community, so they are the best conduit.

FRYSCs in Logan County Schools and across the state promote the health, safety, and success of students both in and beyond the school environment by providing necessary services to families, as well as exciting student, family, and community engagement events.

Watch for news detailing how the GEER II grant project will benefit Auburn School, students and families.
