Family Resource

Welcome to the Rosenwald-Dunbar Elementary Family Resource Center! My name is Emily Andrews and I am Rosenwald’s FRC Coordinator. Our main goal and purpose here at the FRC is to help you and your family remove any barriers or obstacles along the academic journey. We offer an array of services, including (but not limited to) a clothing closet, school supplies, connections to community resources for food, clothing, housing and utility assistance, and family nights to help connect and strengthen your family! If you ever have questions, concerns, or suggestions on how we can serve you, please feel free to stop by and see me (see the secretary for my location in the building). Or you can send me an email at


Check out our brochure for more details on how we can help your family!

I look forward to meeting and serving the amazing families at Rosenwald-Dunbar Elementary School!
