Family Resource Center

Welcome to Freedom's Family Resource Homepage .  


My name is Chris Dudley and I am Freedom's Family Resource Coordinator.   


The Kentucky Fam ily Resource Centers were established as a component of the historic Kentucky Education Reform Act (KERA) of 1990. The mission of these school-based centers is to help academically at-risk students succeed in school by helping to minimize or eliminate noncognitive barriers to learning.    


Schools where at least 20 percent of the student population is eligible for free or reduced school meals may compete for FRYSC funding. Approximately, 55 percent of students enrolled in Kentucky's public schools are eligible for free school meals.   

FRYSCs are strengthened by community partnerships in their ability to provide vital programs, services and referrals to students and their families. These partnerships are critical in efforts on behalf of students to promote:  

  • early learning and successful transition to school;    

  • academic achievement and well-being; and    

  • graduation and transition into adult life.   

Each center offers a unique blend of programs and services to serve the special needs of their student and family client populations.  The goal of the FRYSCs is to meet the needs of all children and their families served by the centers as a means to enhance student academic success.  


FRC Center of operation is from 7:00-3:00. After hours by appointments only. Please feel free to contact me at (270)887-7153. My email address is
