GMS Family Resource Center


Mission Statement

The mission of the GMS Family Resource Center is to provide positive family support and create long-lasting and effective family partnerships in order to support students’ academic success and social-emotional growth.


Our Partnerships

Through established relationships with community organizations, social service agencies, and healthcare providers, GMS Family Resource Center offers an array of services geared to improve social, economic, physical and mental well-being of our families.  Our service partners include: Crawford County Department of Job & Family Services, Ohio Heartland Community Action Commission, YMCA, Galion Public Library, and Avita Health Systems.


Family Services

Every family encounters hardships from time to time.  Studies have shown these hardships often impact students’ ability to perform academically and/or interact with peers socially. 

At Galion Middle School, we strive to directly provide services and/or connect families with service providers to assist families in need.  Our services range from financial assistance and counseling referrals, to adult education and career advising.

Parenting Resources

 Being a member of GMS family means having an access to a multitude of positive parenting resources.  We offer a collection of materials on parenting challenges and ways to meaningfully engage in your child’s academic and social life.  Below are links to positive support videos and brochures on various parenting topics.
