Family Resource Centers

United Way’s network of Family Resource Centers is the one-stop-shop for health and human service needs in neighborhoods.

Residents of at-risk neighborhoods face multiple barriers to being able to lead stable, healthy and productive lives. Some of these barriers are high poverty rates, high rates of unemployment and under-employment, low academic achievement and high levels of crime, teen pregnancy, single-parent households and rent burden.

  • Family Resource Centers (FRCs) serve 32,000 low income residents annually
  • FRCs deliver meals/food boxes and provided holiday assistance to children, seniors, and families
  • Various adult education programs and senior services offered
  • Youth services provided at all FRCs provide youth the opportunity to be active in tutoring, mentoring, recreation and enrichment activities
