• Independence Family Assistance Program

    From time to time, families find themselves in need of resources at school and beyond. It is our goal to assist families in meeting these needs while maintaining complete confidentiality. Our program is coordinated by our school’s Family Liaison, Michelle Carey. If you are a family who anticipates needing assistance of any kind this year, please contact her at any point during the school year as needs arise. Please understand that it is not a guarantee that we can meet every need, but we will do our best. Our goal is to help families meet their needs by referring them to existing resources. We maintain an extensive list of these resources.
