Frisco Family Services

Frisco Family Services helps members of our communities who are facing hunger, homelessness and other urgent needs improve their quality of life and achieve self-sufficiency. We're able to do that through extensive programs and services.

If you live in Frisco or within the Frisco ISD limits and have a documented crisis, you may be eligible to receive assistance. In order to determine if you are eligible, come into our office located at 8780 Third Street in Frisco to complete an application and set up an appointment to meet with a Case Manager. During your appointment, a Case Manger will complete an assessment to determine your eligibility and provide you with an overview of our programs and services. 

Qualified families shop for food in Frisco's only Food Pantry. Set up like a grocery store, clients are able to shop for the food they know their families will eat.
