The Family Resource Center Association (FRCA) empowers families to raise healthy children by strengthening and sustaining the work of our 24 family resource centers across Colorado. Family resource centers work with the entire family to help them become more self-reliant in key areas that affect their family stability, including parenting, health, education, employment, housing and financial management. FRCA’s mission is to provide public advocacy, capacity building, and resource development to strengthen its statewide network of family resource centers as they bring help and hope to Colorado families.
Family resource centers provide a safe, accessible place for families to connect with comprehensive, coordinated services that help them strengthen their families and become more self-reliant. Programs at each center are tailored to the culture, resources and needs of the community they serve, and focus on building on the strengths of each family and individual. While programs vary according to local needs, other core services of family resource centers include Family Development (family-centered case management using a proven, research-based approach); Resource Information and Referral (helping families connect and access local resources); Access to Healthcare and Nutrition; Youth Development; and Emergency Assistance.
