Family Access Network
FAN is unique to Central Oregon, located in all public schools in Deschutes and Crook Counties. Working through a dedicated FAN advocate, a child or parent is connected to essential services such as food, shelter, heating, health care, clothing and more. FAN advocates link children and families to critical basic need services with the goal of keeping children healthy and in school. FAN provides a direct and convenient way within the school to connect children to vital resources. FAN advocates support Central Oregon’s most vulnerable families, removing barriers and paving the way for a child’s success. FAN advocates improve the lives of over 9,000 children and family members in our community each year.
Mission: To offer assistance, possibility and hope to Central Oregon families in need by connecting them with crucial resources that will help children flourish in school and in life.
