Mission Statement: Our mission as school counselors is to provide the opportunity for all students to develop educational, social, career and personal strengths, through counseling, consultation, coordination and collaboration within a developmental guidance and counseling program.
The Family Support Center is a Place for Families
The center is a safe, trusting and confidential environment where families can receive assistance in applying their own solutions to life's everyday challenges. The program is housed at Depew Middle School in Room 214. Referrals to the center are made by the school counselors after consultation or parent's needs. The program is supported and funded by the Depew Union Free School District. District staff provide counseling, family-based support, school-home coordination and referrals to various community agencies when appropriate for a family's needs.
Parents interested in using this service should phone the guidance ofSeparatorfice at their child's building.
