Daily Republic: Family resource centers face cutbacks

FAIRFIELD — Martha Armstrong can use a helping hand from time to time and finds one at the family resource center at Cleo Gordon Elementary School.

Armstrong has been a widow for three years and lives in a Tabor Avenue apartment with her 24-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son. She works at a local inventory company.

The family resource center has helped her find resources for rent payments, PG&E payments, clothing, transportation and even household cleaning supplies. On a recent day, Maria Gabbart of the center came to Armstrong’s apartment to talk about enrolling her Armstrong’s son in kindergarten and to talk about child development and parenting.
