Our two Family Resource Centers (FRCs), located in Worcester and Southbridge, are part of a statewide network of community-based providers offering multi-cultural parenting programs, support groups, early childhood services, information and referral resources and education for families whose children range in age from birth to 18 years of age. Family Resource Centers are located in 24 communities throughout Massachusetts to provide easy access to information and assistance related to health care, safety, employment training, education and peer support. In each of these communities and centers, the goal is to support families to strengthen their bonds, connect to others, and engage in their community.
FRC sites are selected through a competitive bidding process, and funded by the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families.
