About the Family Resource Center
The Family Resource Center links Wayne-Westland families with agencies, organizations, volunteer groups and schools to meet their social, emotional, physical and academic needs. The Family Resource Center is located inside of Adams Middle School.
We partner with families, the community, and school district staff in order to positively impact the success of every Wayne-Westland student. Through a collaborative effort, we link families with agencies, organizations, volunteer groups, and schools to meet their social, emotional, physical and academic needs.
Amanda Dybus is the District Homeless Liaison, and if anyone has a question or a concern about a family who they think may be experiencing homelessness, please call her at 734-419-2709.
