Family & Community Partnership Liaison Program

What does a Family and Community Liaison Do?

The Family and Community Liaison is an employee with the ESCWR that works with all schools (public or private) in Lake and Geauga Counties to assist school staff, students and their families.  It is the liaison’s role to serve as a link between families and schools, and to broker community resources that offer a network of support.  This new program is a no-cost service for schools and their students through federal funding known as the CARES Act.  

How does the Liaison Assist Students & Families?

  • Provides information about school and community resources and links families to them

How do Students & Families access Services?

After the referral is made the liaison will assist the student and their family by connecting them with our community partners in both counties to provide services tailored their individual needs.
