The Enfield Family Resource Center’s mission is to ensure that Enfield children enter school ready to learn and thrive! We accomplish this mission by providing education and support to parents, we partner with community and philanthropic organizations, and we apply industry best practices in the development and implementation of our programs and activities.
Family Resource Centers (FRCs) are the most typical kind of Family Support and Strengthening programs. They are known by many different names across the country, including Family Centers, Family Success Centers, Family Support Centers, and Parent Child Centers. They may be community-based or school-based. They serve as welcoming hubs of community services and opportunities designed to strengthen families. Their activities and programs, typically provided at no or low cost to participants, are developed to reflect and be responsive to the specific needs, cultures, and interests of the communities and populations served. There is no dedicated federal funding for FRCs, and yet there are more than 3,000 of them nationwide.
