Basic Education - Mission
The City of San Antonio Department of Human Services Family Resource and Learning Division consists of the Administrative Office, and eight Community Family Resource and Learning Centers (CFRLC).
The Administration office provides support to the adult literacy and education initiative, oversees construction of citywide CFRLC’s, funded by a 1989 voter approved bond issue, and staffs the San Antonio Commission on Literacy (SACOL).
It also coordinates: the Annual City-wide Convocation of Literacy Providers, and the annual Literacy Awareness events.
The CFRLCs provide educational services to adults, which are made possible through an extensive collaboration with Region 20 Educational Service Center, San Antonio Independent School District, North East Independent School District and a variety of community resources.
The goal of the CFRLCs is to offer educational opportunities and related services to enable individuals to enhance their ability to read, write, and converse in English, and solve problems at levels of proficiency necessary to function on the job and in society, to achieve one’s goals, and develop one’s knowledge and potential as well as computer literacy and financial literacy.
