St. Anthony-New Brighton Family Services Collaborative
The St. Anthony-New Brighton Family Service Collaborative (FSC) provides a wide variety of programs and activities for youth and families in our community. Federal and county funding, earmarked for prevention and intervention programs, is tallied by the daily tasks of counselors, administration and support staff within the school district. The Family Service Collaborative (FSC) Board is responsible for determining the use of this funding through ongoing goal setting and evaluation. The FSC board is made up of representatives from the school district, school board, community services, city council, civic groups such as Kiwanis and Lions, faith communities, businesses, law enforcement, county agencies, parents from each school building and students from the middle and high schools.
Over the past several years, the FSC has funded essential support services for youth and families in all three school buildings including counselors and a school based mental health worker as well as for the early childhood programming available through the St. Anthony Community Services. The Collaborative has sponsored such after school programs as Campus Club, Open Gym and middle school musicals as well as coordinated such parent resources as the Husky Parent Newsletter, the Parent Communication Directory (PCD) and speakers on such topics as bullying, chemical use, and parenting strategies.
The FSC is always looking for parent and community volunteers to help energize and maintain its programs and activities. Questions about the Family Services Collaborative can be directed to Wendy Webster, Director of the Collaborative, at 612.706.1170 (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Bonnie Brever, Collaborative Chair, at 612.706.1102 (email@example.com).
