Rio Vista Family Resource Center

Welcome to the Pendergast Family Resource Center where we empower families one referral at a time! Through a partnership with First Things First, the Pendergast Elementary School District has developed Family Resource Centers in an effort to provide quality, comprehensive and streamlined services to families with a focus on families with children birth to age five. Our mobile Family Resource team goes out into the community and to our schools to provide parent education opportunities, adult-child interactive classes, and to connect families with the resources they may need.  Our primary Family Resource Center is located within the Pendergast Community Center (PCC) at 10550 W. Mariposa St. Suite 2  Phoenix, AZ  85037 where families have the opportunity to participate in age appropriate early childhood activities with their children, access a  well-equipped media center, attend parenting classes, as well as receive resource and referral support by our knowledgeable community specialists within the Family Resource Center. To support families in the Avondale Community we also offer the Rio Vista FRC located in Rio Vista Elementary.  We have something for everyone!
