Family Resource Center
The Family Resource Center Program is funded by a grant from the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services Office of Community Partnerships and Grants.
What is a Family Resource Center (FRC)? A Family Resource Center is a safe and friendly place to go for many different types of resources when families need help.
Who Can Get Help? The Family Resource Center serves anyone who lives in the surrounding community. There are no income qualifications to use the Family Resource Center, although some referrals to other services may be limited according to income guidelines. The Family Resource Center serves children, teens, parents, single adults, and seniors.
What services does the Family Resource Center offer?
- Resources/Referrals: All of the Family Resource Center sites offer resource and referral services. Individuals may call the Family Resource Center for information and referrals to resources in the community which may be able to help meet basic needs or provide other forms of assistance. Staff is available to assist families with identifying needs and to help them locate the resources to potentially meet those needs. Families with minor or school aged children can enroll in the Family Success Program.
- Family Success Program: The Family Success Program is a voluntary program that consists of an initial discussion to determine the needs of the family and then links the family with appropriate community and government resources. A plan is made with the family to help set goals and action steps necessary to meet those goals. The plan is tailored to address the unique needs of the family and will likely require additional appointments. Families who are taking action and making progress towards attaining their goals may be eligible for additional services.
- On-going Support: Staff members of the Family Resource Center provide on-going support to families. They are available to help with budgeting, goal setting, and problem solving. They are also available to assist you in obtaining services through advocacy and interventions with other community agencies.
