    I'm tasked with assisting you and your family through each school year until you graduate from McFatter Technical College and High School. As barriers arise, I hope to support you in achieving academic and social emotional success by connecting the home, school and community.

    *Grief and Loss Support  

    *Family Supports            

    *Community Resources referrals
