Meet David! David works at the Family Center at 90 Federal St. in Greenfield. He works together with families and schools to help kids get what they need when they're facing big challenges. He can help at any age from kindergarten through senior year of high school!

Now that the school year is wrapping up, come talk to David about how you can help support your child next school year. He can help with the IEP/504 process, getting kids evaluated, and other school-related supports.

Do you know a family who had struggles with school this year? Call or visit the Family Center and ask for David! 413-475-1555
