Find out how students can get local access to basic needs by watching the video below.
When Stark County students experience challenges at home, it influences their academic experience. A lack of basic needs, like getting enough food and sleep, can impact their ability to focus and stay awake at school.
Schools want to partner with you and your family in order to support your student. You know your child best. Reach out to the teachers and administrators involved with your student so they can have a safe and successful school year.
If you need additional support for basic needs, such as food and nutrition, clothing assistance, or housing, you can find resources on StarkHelpCentral.com at any time.
