"Building healthy communities one family at a time."

January 2017 Calendar

History:

In 1997 the City of Garden Grove took a proactive approach to developing youth potential, supporting families, and developing communities by adopting the Family Opportunities Creating Unity and Support (FOCUS) philosophy. This philosophy led the City to convene an informal group of service providers for the purpose of community resource and information sharing. The group became the FOCUS Collaborative.

When the Families and Communities Together (FaCT) Request for Proposal for Family Resource Centers was released in 1999, the FOCUS Collaborative and the City of Garden Grove were uniquely positioned to apply for funding. The City established the Magnolia Park Family Resource Center (MPFRC) in response to the community needs for family support and prevention services. Since 1999, the MPFRC has provided the residents of Garden Grove with vital community services to achieve it’s mission of “building healthy communities one family at a time.”

Through its partnerships with funded and non-funded partners, MPFRC is able to offer essential core services to individuals and families.


MPFRC’s Core Services


  • Comprehensive Case Management
  • MPFRC hosts weekly case management team meetings. The meetings, overseen by Community Service Programs, provide a forum for the introduction of new client cases, review of client needs, and community resource sharing.

  • Information & Referral
  • The staff at MPFRC is committed to providing community members with resource information and referral. Whether services are provided on-site, at a partner family resource center, or other community agency, no consumer leaves empty-handed when seeking resource information. MPFRC has developed a comprehensive resource directory with information for those seeking emergency shelter, legal aid, rental assistance, money management, and food banks, among other services.

  • Individualized Educational Plan Clinics & Workshops
  • Magnolia Park Family Resource Center has partnered with Team of Advocates for Special Kids (TASK) to provide Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) clinics and workshops. The IEP clinics are designated for families who need assistance with IEP meetings and understanding basic rights. IEP consultations are by appointment only. They are conducted in English or Spanish. Parents are requested to bring in all of their child's educational records for review by trained staff members with experience in attending IEP meetings and understanding of the laws serving individuals with special needs. Information workshops on the IEP Assessment Process, Rights and Strategies are also offered regularly.
