    The Wylie Center 
Come join us this month at the Flapjack Fundraiser, it's the perfect way to spend time with your family and friends! See details below.
Did you know that the Wylie Center provides school-based prevention and intervention services to the students in the greater Riverside area? 


Through contracts with both Alvord and Riverside Unified School Districts, The Wylie Center Outreach Counselors are housed in more than ten elementary, middle and high schools.


The Outreach Counselors work with children, youth and school personnel in many ways, such as:

  • Individual and small group counseling sessions
  • Crisis intervention
  • Parent consultation

In these short-term programs, the students receive guidance in dealing with challenges at school and the community.  The goal of the outreach counselor is to help the students have a great school experience, while encouraging the parents to be involved in the process.


For more information about the Outreach Program or to find out if your child goes to a  participating school, call Rosemary Garcia at 683-5193 ext 211

     The Connie L. Beasley and   Family Scholarship Fund 

Children's Center Founder Connie L. Beasley has been working tirelessly to develop a scholarship fund to assist the Wylie Center's most deserving families.
In Spring, 2009, after two years of research and hard work, Connie, along with volunteer Karen Bradford, published  Our Story, a 93-page, full color history that weaves together the stories of both the Children's Center and the Beasley family.  Proceeds from the sale of this delightful memoir benefit the Scholarship Fund.
We are grateful to the Beasley family for its ongoing contributions to the children and families of the Wylie Center.
For more information on how to contribute to the Beasley Family Scholarship Fund, call Connie at 951-683-5193.
