What is a Family Resource Center?

The Family Resource Centers are caring, compassionate, supportive places where every member of the community can feel welcome. Family Resource Centers partner with families and the community to help them be successful by strengthening children, youth, families, and the community as a whole. This is done through a number of programs and services designed to support children, families, and the community.
