COVID-19 Support

Update from The Link Family Resource Center

Our mission at The Link Family Resource Center is to foster a safe, healthy, and thriving community by linking children, youth, and families with programs and services to address their unique needs. Our programs remain operational and we are committed to serving families in our community during this unusual time.

The Link Family Advocates are working remotely while schools are closed and in communication with families, school staff and our community partners. We continue to work closely with family support organizations in SLO County to provide resources to families in need and help mitigate the stressors that put children at risk for abuse and neglect. All families, especially those in vulnerable social and economic situations, need our support now.
