The Family Access Network (FAN)

Our Mission: The Family Access Network improves lives by ensuring that children have access to basic need services. FAN is unique to Central Oregon, located in all public schools in Deschutes County and in Prineville. Working through a dedicated FAN advocate, a child or parent is connected to essential services such as food, shelter, heating, health care, clothing and more. read more…

FAN advocates link children and families to critical basic need services with the goal of keeping children healthy and in school. FAN provides a direct and convenient way within the school to connect children to vital resources. FAN advocates support our most needy families, removing barriers and paving the way for a child’s success. FAN advocates improve the lives of over 9,000 children and family members in our community each year.
