Debbie Curley, UA AZ Cooperative Ext., SCC, says Family Resource Centers, which are funded by First Things First, have opened in Nogales and Rio Rico.  Located at 441 N. Grand in Nogales and near Rio Rico High School, she says the programs are focused on helping parents and caregivers prepare children for kindergarten and for life.  She says when children are prepared for school they are less in need of remedial education and less likely to drop out.
