Family Referral Services
Along with all of the trials and tribulations that we face in today's society, raising a child to his or her full potential is no easy task. Our goal is to provide the families we serve with the resources they need. We offer information regarding community services and families decide which specific provider to choose. Some of the information we provide includes child care providers, community agencies, stores and restaurants that are located in the surrounding area.
Backpacks for Kids
Every August the FRC and the Association of Family and Consumer Sciences (AFCS) work together to collect school supplies and monetary donations to provide the children of NMSU students with backpacks and supplies for the coming school year.
