Opening of Bellevue Family HUB at Highland Middle School!
The Bellevue School District welcomes families from across the district to the new Bellevue Family Hub located at Highland Middle School. Beginning August 22, families are invited to visit the Hub to meet with trained volunteers who can connect them to resources for clothing assistance, rent assistance, and BSD school support. The Bellevue Family Hub located at Highland Middle School (15027 NE Bel-Red Road) is a joint partnership between the Bellevue School District and Bellevue LIfeSpring.
Bellevue Family HUB Resources for Families
Initially, volunteers at the Hub will focus on ensuring that families have access to three essential resources for a successful start to the year: 1) Online student verification and completing the application for Free/Reduced-Price Meals; 2) Back-to-school clothing support for students and 3) Navigating resources for rent assistance.

Public-Private Community Focused Partnership
The Bellevue Family Hub will serve as a one stop center for Bellevue School District families to receive the supports they need. The Bellevue Family Hub seeks to develop respectful, trusting partnerships between families and staff knowing that family, school, and community partnerships are integral to student outcomes.
Funding and staff support for the Bellevue Family Hub is provided by local non-profit Bellevue LifeSpring. Since 1911, Bellevue LifeSpring has been supporting Bellevue’s children and their families with programs that provide food, clothing, summer school and credit recovery scholarships, and emergency rent assistance.
In 2020, Amazon established a partnership with Bellevue LifeSpring through its innovative Right Now Needs Fund. Amazon’s support helps further Bellevue LifeSpring’s ability to meet the immediate needs of Bellevue families.
“We are thrilled to partner with the Bellevue School District and Amazon in creating this new resource center for Bellevue families. We look forward to providing immediate support for students and families in our community to ensure their needs are being met. This is a project that will evolve as we work together with the district to enhance our services.”
