Building Strong Families

Our Mission

  • Through the center, Amherst Central School District is partnering with community human service agencies to provide support for families’ social, education, mental and physical health needs. With on-site school district school counselors located at the center, the Family Support Center model provides easy access to a host of community services. We anticipate that the center will provide a “lifeline” for some of our families. The Family Support Center is another level of intervention in the district's student support services. The entire family is incorporated into counseling and support to address all facets of what may be affecting the student's academic progress at all levels.
