To improve the quality of life in Northern Greenville County by providing residents a gateway to comprehensive services, programs and resources that support, educate and empower.
Foothills Family Resources is the sole provider of resources to an underserved population beset by generational poverty, a lack of transportation, high unemployment rates, high teen pregnancy rates, low graduation rates and poor healthcare. Clients receive services in our facility from a diverse group of professionals which includes five counselors, four therapists, four R.N.s, two M.D.s, two teachers, a caseworker, nutritionist, dietician and a family advocate. FFR’s impressive staff provides for the mind and body of our clients via therapeutic counseling sessions, medical assistance and education. FFR nurtures our clients through stressful times, escorts them through the maternity process, educates them on healthy dieting practices, provides them opportunities to further their education and nourishes them when the cupboards are bare. Without FFR’s services, most of those we serve would miss the opportunity to move from crisis to self-sufficiency.
