The LINK’s mission is to “support children,
youth and families by providing services and linking
resources to foster a safe, healthy and thriving community.” The
LINK is a non-profit Family &
Youth Development Organization. The LINK runs a network of Family
Resource Centers in North
San Luis Obispo County and serves youth and families by linking them
to resources and services,
providing case management, and connecting them to concrete support
in times of need.
At the heart of The LINK’s services are its Family Advocates, who
work with The Paso Robles
and Atascadero School Districts to provide linkages to family and
children in need of services
and support. The Family Advocates work in partnership with teachers,
staff, and principals to
identify children who may be struggling socially and academically.
The Family Advocates then
connect with the parents or caregivers and develop a partnership
with them to access
resources and develop a plan to overcome their particular crisis.
Many of the services offered through The LINK’s Family Resource
Centers (Atascadero LINK,
Paso Robles LINK, San Miguel LINK), include school and community
based counseling, parent
education, child abuse prevention and education, system navigation
and support, homeless
services and support, and connections to drug and alcohol services
In 2012, The LINK worked with 1,750 unduplicated residents in San
Luis Obispo County
providing direct intervention services to help them overcome crisis.
