Since the start of the pandemic, Family Access Network (FAN) has served families throughout Central Oregon creatively within an ever-changing landscape.

Specifically, many families in South County have been directly affected by COVID-19, struggling with a loss of job or a reduction in work hours.

According to Julie Lyche, FAN Executive Director, South County FAN advocates are working diligently to support families on a daily basis with food, housing, transportation, utilities, heating, and more. This has become even more important as winter arrives: power companies have begun shut off notices again, and a lifting of the eviction moratorium is looming.

“Our local families are struggling to make ends meet. The 2020-2021 school year has demonstrated that basic needs during this global pandemic are essential for children and, with the help of our community, FAN is making sure that these children are receiving the support they need. Together, we are helping local kids and families stay resilient during this challenging time,” reported Lyche, FAN Executive Director.

Roundhouse Foundation is proud to support FAN and their work to support families through and beyond the pandemic. Learn more about FAN and their work to support families in Central Oregon. Learn more and support the Family Access Network.
