Family Resources at Centennial

  • Centennial's Family Resource Center is always here to help your family navigate the tough circumstances that we all face from time to time. Give us a call, we are happy to help!

    Our amazing Family Center Coordinator, Mrs. Gifford, has packed our Resource Center (in Rm 1) with things like student clothing and shoes, warm jackets and hoodies, and toiletries.

    With help from community partners such as the amazing Ruth's Closet at St. Alice's Church, we are able to provide even more clothing. Genesis Community Church has opened a clothing closet. Snack packs provided weekly by the amazing Elks Club give kids extra food for the weekends. Families who may not be able to provide items from the supply list – we have your back. The One Hope Network organizes a school supply event each year before school starts. And each year we coordinate resources at the holidays and special gifts for families in need. 

    Whatever your circumstances, just give us a call or text for confidential, nonjudgmental help!
