Community Resources for Families Program
What is the Community Resources for Families Program?
Community Resources for Families (CRFF) connects families with appropriate resources available in the community. It is a voluntary prevention-based program developed to provide assistance and support for families whose children attend participating schools. A wide range of services are available through CRFF but the program is specifically designed to assist a family facing a crisis or emergency situation.
There are various ways in which a family can participate, depending upon their individual need and desire. The level of involvement can range from a one-time visit to obtain needed information to an assessment and planning process of up to 90 days. Since CRFF is a partnership between the School District and Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, financial assistance may be made available for those who qualify.

Developing Healthy Habits at Home
- Children thrive with routine - whenever possible, have regular times for reading, dinner, homework, and play
- Limit screen time and avoid TVs and phones before bed
- Read to your kids and with your kids every day
- Be available to answer questions and offer assistance, but never do a child's homework for him or her
- Students need lots of fresh and new choices for reading - consider joining the public library and making it park of your weekly or biweekly routine
- Remember, children copy - if you read, they will read - if you eat a vegetable, they will eat a vegetable - if you go for a walk, they will go with you!
