The Family Resource Center program design is to provide comprehensive, integrated services located in public school buildings. By strengthening effective family management practices and establishing a continuum of child care and support services for parents and children in need. FRCs work to provide the best possible start for all children and families regardless of race, ethnicity and socio-economic status. Centers provide a common location for families to take advantage of a range of services which can be tailored to meet the unique needs of families from diverse backgrounds and cultures.
PHILOSOPHY: Philosophy of the Family Resource Center Initiative: Parenting is the most difficult and important job you will ever have, and potentially, the most rewarding. The Family Resource Center (FRC) believes that a child's healthy development and good education begin with quality support services from birth. The vision guiding the Family Resource Centers is to prevent an array of childhood and adolescent problems by strengthening effective family management practices and establishing a continuum of child care and support services that children and parents need. FRCs will help make it possible for parents to provide the best possible start for their children by providing services that enhance self-esteem, encourage growth, and enable family members to reach their full potential.
