Family Access Network receives $10,000 grant


The Family Access Network is the recipient of a $10,000 grant from The Clabough Foundation to support early childhood FAN advocate services.

FAN’s early childhood advocate connects children ages 0-5, and their families, to basic-need services such as food, shelter, heating, health care and more.

“We are very appreciative of the grant funds from The Clabough Foundation. This grant will help to support our youngest and most needy children, those struggling to make it from day to day. The $10,000 grant will go a long way in our efforts to assist disadvantaged children and family members each year,” Julie N. Lyche, FAN Executive Director.

The goals of The Clabough Foundation are 1) to promote and improve the conservancy and stewardship of the natural resources in the High Country of North Carolina and the Deschutes River Watershed of Central Oregon by aiding public and private organizations involved in such activities and 2) to promote and foster the regional arts and cultural offerings of the High Country area of North Carolina and the Deschutes River Watershed area of Central Oregon.

The foundation emphasizes recreational and educational activities in achieving these goals.

FAN began in January 1993 and currently employs 23 advocates in 46 public schools (K-12) and three early childhood sites. FAN strives to improve lives by ensuring all children in Deschutes County have access to basic-need services.

FAN is unique to Deschutes County, utilizing advocates to efficiently reach and connect disadvantaged children and families with basic needs, such as food, shelter, clothing, and health care.
