Community Programs

Family Resource Coordinators (FRC)


Family Resource Coordinators (FRC)  provide support and assistance to help families with children (ages 0-6) in identified health equity zones. FRCs focus on early childhood success including pre-kindergarten readiness and reading by third grade. Families with a child in the age range can receive services. FRCs identify services that meet the immediate needs of the referred family and find the supports to match those needs. The primary focus of  FRCs is to connect families with resources including early childhood screens and assessments, establishing a medical home, signing up for Kindergarten,  and more.

Preschool Promise (PP)


Preschool Promise (PP) is a State funded program that provides high quality, culturally relevant preschool opportunities to children ages 3 and 4. To qualify, families must live at, or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines.  The primary goals are:   

•Support young children to thrive and succeed in school and life. 

•Allow families to choose the preschool which best meets their needs. 

•Provide a common set of high standards to promote school readiness and active family engagement. 

•Provide culturally and linguistically responsive services and opportunities for underrepresented families.  

The Early Learning Hub of Clackamas County was one of 8 hubs within the state to receive Preschool Promise funding. 

Our PP funding serves 18 children at Sandy Grade School, and 10 children at the Oregon Child Development Coalition (OCDC) site in Mulino.
