Focus on Children and Families

Raquel PictureWelcome to the Focus on Children & Families (FCF) webpage! My name is Raquel Herrera and I am a Family Intervention Specialist. FCF is an early intervention and prevention program that offers a wide range of services to children and their families (PreK-5th).  The program began in 1993 providing quality social services to families through collaborations between the school district and community agencies. 

I provide social services to families struggling financially by referring to community agencies.
I oversee the Operation Noel registration and distribution process for jackets and shoes. I am also here to support teachers, parents, and students by addressing behavior/emotional concerns that arise.

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker practicing for fourteen years and enjoy working with children and families. I work at Clendenin and Powell Elementary Schools with the following schedule:
