    The North Liberty Family Resource Center (NLFRC) is a free resource for families in the North Liberty community. Our mission is to affirm, strengthen, support and help reduce a child’s barriers to learning. We as Student and Family Advocates strive to facilitate communication between home and school to ensure a successful learning experience for all students.

    We help reduce a child’s barriers to learning by…

    • Seeking strategies on family issues – child development, home routines, divorce, mental health issues
    • Access Iowa City Community School District resources
    • “Language Line”- access this resource to speak with families that speak a different language
    • Access community resource – housing, food, doctor/dentist, medical insurance and child care/preschool
    • Assist families that have temporary housing issues
    • Help navigate referrals and resources for mental health assessments and services
    • Welcoming new families to our schools and helping with e-registration and F/R lunch applications
    • Support attendance plans/truancy
    • Assist with problem solving in crisis situations
    • Provide transportation to school related events and necessary appointments
    • “Family to Family”- program connecting families in need of household items with families who have household items to donate
