Guiding at risk children in postive directions.
Families and Schools Together (FAST) has been strengthening families in San Antonio since 1993. Today, FAST serves 3 elementary schools and 3 Head Start centers in Bexar County. In a collaborative effort among schools, Family Service Association and families, FAST focuses on children at risk for school failure, juvenile delinquency and substance abuse in adolescence. FAST brings parents, children, teachers and schools together to enhance family functioning and communication, support parents and children in stress-reduction techniques and increase parental participation in the schools. FAST builds self-esteem in children and helps them develop resilience to negative social influences.
This year, over 1,000 children, parents and their families will benefit from these FAST services:
|Edgewood ISD||South San Antonio ISD||Northside ISD|
|Loma Elementary (FASTWORKS)||Athens Elementary||Cable Elementary|
|Burleson ECEC (FASTWORKS)||Stafford ECEC|
|Jose Cardenas ECEC|
