CALEXICO — For much of the past 17 years, the Calexico Unified School District’s Family Resource Center had been operating out of a relatively small modular building on Highway 98 near Mains Elementary.

For about 15 of those years, FRC coordinator Hortencia Armendariz had held out hope that a more expansive site would be located for its various services and growing volume of clientele.
