Mission: To enhance students' abilities to succeed in school by developing and sustaining partnerships that promote:

*Early learning and transition into school

*Academic achievement and well-being

*Graduation and transition into life

Vision: To establish the national standard of excellence in the provision of school-based family support.


The Kentucky Family Resource and Youth Services Centers were established as a component of the historic Kentucky Education Reform Act (KERA) of 1990. The mission of these school-based centers is to help academically at-risk students succeed in school by helping to minimize or eliminate noncognitive barriers to learning.

Schools where at least 20 percent of the student population is eligible for free or reduced school meals may compete for FRYSC funding. Approximately, 55 percent of students enrolled in Kentucky’s public schools are eligible for free school meals.

FRYSCs are strengthened by community partnerships in their ability to provide vital programs, services and referrals to students and their families. These partnerships are critical in efforts on behalf of students to promote:

  • early learning and successful transition to school;
  • academic achievement and well-being; and
  • graduation and transition into adult life.

Each center offers a unique blend of programs and services to serve the special needs of their student and family client populations. The goal of the FRYSCs is to meet the needs of all children and their families served by the centers as a means to enhance student academic success.

On April 15, 2008, Gov. Steve Beshear signed Senate Bill 192 into law, allowing changes to the FRYSC core components as listed below.
Family Resource Centers serve children under school age and in elementary school and coordinate:

  • preschool child care;
  • after-school child day care;
  • families in training;
  • family literacy services; and, health services and referrals
