Community Resources for Families
The Great Valley School District understands that for students to be successful in school, the basic needs of the student and family must first be met. To that end, we are pleased to partner with our community organizations to offer support to families in need. Additionally, programs are in place that support our homeless families, those in need of meal or dental health support, and those who may need mental health support.
Each year, in partnership with local churches, the Adopt-A-Family program assists families with food, clothing, and gifts during the holiday season (winter and spring).
