    Just in time for the Holiday Break, Tri-Cities High School recently celebrated the grand opening of its Unidos Center, the newest S.A.F.E Center operating in Fulton County Schools (FCS). S.A.F.E stands for Student And Family Engagement, and free services in the center are supported by federal funds from the FCS Bridge to Success Plan, as well as grants and donations.

    As a part of Fulton County School’s Bridge to Success Expanded Programs Initiative, Tri-Cities’ S.A.F.E Center is one of three located in high schools across the district. The new Unidos Center is located in the heart of the Tri-Cities High School building and is managed by two dedicated full-time staff, including a Coordinator and a School Social Worker. Some of the free goods and services provided include groceries, clothing, shoes, laundry and hygiene items. Mental and physical health care support will also be provided, along with housing assistance and other wraparound services.

    FCS S.A.F.E Centers operate under the tenets of the Community School model, which is basically a set of partnerships between the school system, the nonprofit sector, and local government agencies. Grand openings for S.A.F.E Centers at Banneker High School and North Springs High School are scheduled to take place in early 2023.

    For more information on this groundbreaking and unique district concept, please watch the following “Let’s Talk Schools” episode with FCS Deputy Chief Academic Officer Dr. Gymiah Whitaker and Banneker High School Principal Dr. Jason Stamper.
