The Caring Connections Center (CCC) is a “family resource center” and part of the PUSD Student Support Services Department.
The focus of service is for students in grades K-12 who may be
experiencing any of the following: difficult situations at home or
in school, depression, continued academic failure, involvement in
violence-related offenses, alcohol or other drug related behavior.
Families may be referred by school personnel, or may choose to
self-refer for assistance.
Once referred to the Caring Connections Center, families participate
in a “Family Conference” to discuss school perceptions, goals,
family concerns, “stressors”, medical issues, and family background.
At the conference, families learn to identify and prioritize their
concerns, create an Action Plan, and connect with appropriate school
and community resources. The goal of the family conference is to
build on family strengths while encouraging self-advocacy and
awareness of community services that support student well-being.
The Caring Connections Center services are available to all Poway
Unified School District students and families. Contact the CCC, a
site counselor or administrator for more information.
