About NCC/FRC

Promoting Community Well-being through Partnership
The National City Collaborative (NCC) is the infrastructure for joint strategic planning and integrated programs, policies or facilities development. The NCC serves to nurture and promote the collective vision of over fifty member community organizations and agencies to guide the work of diverse agencies and to affect systems change that will enhance the well-being of the National City Community. The National City Schools is the fiscal agent for the Collaborative and the integrated services. The programs offered to the community are primarily delivered through strategically located Family Resource Centers (FRC).

The NCC’s Family Resource Center is a “one-stop” service operation that provides over 13 programs and partner services from more than 17 different funding streams, reaching approximately 20,000 individuals and families. The goal is to provide the kind of services the community needs most, and the FRC prides itself on encouraging residents and families to give back to the community.

The FRC provides such services as:
  • Prevention Services that bring information and education to the community, including Adult Education, After-School Tutoring, Spanish Literacy, Health education Classes, TB testing, Immunization clinics, Assistance with forms, as well as advocacy. To take advantage of these services call (619) 336-8360
  • Crisis Intervention is provided for immediate intervention services and referrals to families referred by the schools, from other agencies, and to those who seek help on their own. These services include Counseling, Care Coordination, Rental Assistance, referrals for Shelters, and Emergency Food. The FRC also intercedes on behalf of resident families regarding income maintenance and MediCal issues.
  • Care Coordination is a team effort that provides service for long-term wellness, resolution of multiple needs and case management. Care Coordinators serve individuals, families with children in school, and others. They take into account the priorities of the family, and together with the assigned coordinator initiate a plan that addresses all pertinent concerns.
