Family Resources

"It takes a village to raise a child" is an African proverb that means an entire community of people must provide for and interact positively with children for those children to experience and grow in a safe and healthy environment.

Public schools are the embodiment of that phrase; the stronger the relationship between the school personnel and their students’ families and communities, the better the chances that child has of finding and fulfilling their potential. Our shared goal is the successful educational experience and graduation of every student entrusted to our care.

This section contains several resources that we will hope will be useful to the community and families of the students within Region One. One of the resources closely aligned with that philosophy is Housatonic Youth Service Bureau (HYSB). HYSB exists to strengthen the emotional health of youth and families in the Northwest Corner; it is an independent non-profit with offices on the HVRHS campus.  HYSB provides free behavioral health services and empowerment programs in partnership with our public schools, local organizations, donors, and volunteers.
