Family Resource Centers

Improving health and well-being

United Way’s network of Family Resource Centers (FRC) works to assist at-risk children and their families in meeting specific health and human service needs in neighborhoods or schools.

Currently, United Way serves 18 different Family Resource Centers; each center is tailored based on specific needs of the residents in each neighborhood. This is important, since residents of at-risk neighborhoods face multiple barriers in being able to lead stable, healthy and productive lives. These challenges include high poverty rates, high unemployment rates, low academic achievement, rent burden, single-parent households, and more.

In response to these challenges, United Way aims to provide residents one central location for services and provide them a voice in defining their most pressing neighborhood needs, and finding solutions to these problems. Services offered at each center includes food, clothing, books, supplies, counseling services, and employment resources.
