About Us

HESD Family Resource Center (FRC) is birthed from the vision and mission of those in the Heber Community who have worked diligently to ensure that every student is provided all the tools necessary to succeed in life.

Our FRC is an expansion of the already established wealth of support that teachers, counselors, psychologists, administrators, and all staff within the HESD provide to students and parents on a day to day basis.

Our Services

Basic Needs

Referral for students & families to assist in meeting basic needs in the areas of food, clothing, shelter, and/or any other resource available to help families achieve stability.

Counseling & Education

HESD FRC Staff will collaborate with School Counselors & Behavior Intervention Specialists who provide support to students & parents, utilizing a Tiered Level Interventions Approach.

Individual/Family Support

Our newest addition is the option to access School-Based Individual &/or Family Mental Health Support.

This support will be made available to students identified as struggling to meet academic progress due to impacted mental health & emotional wellbeing.
