"The old adage, 'Give a person a fish and they'll eat for a day. Teach a person to fish, and they'll eat for a lifetime,' is perfect to describe why investing $800,000 into the Los Angeles Valley College Family Resource Center is so critical to ending the cycle of poverty for students," stated Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian. "We need to support students who are working hard to earn a college degree that will increase their workforce potential."
The Family Resource Center reduces barriers to higher education and jobs through a whole-family approach. We know there are greater opportunities for success when the family unit is strong.We collaborate with on-campus support programs and community agencies that all work to advance positive social, economic, and educational outcomes for our students.
