Family Support & Neighborhood Development
The Family Resource Center is funded by The Department of Children and Families (DCF). The center is designed to serve families with children age 0-18 in Northern Berkshire County. Our purpose is to serve these families with resources, educational and skill building programs, social activities, and support they need to create strong, healthy, and happy lives. The resource center can work with youth, family, schools, courts, and other service providers to create a family-centered plan and to connect services for youth and families that may help. All services are free. No insurance required.
The FRC program is built on the Strengthen Families Framework:
- Parental Resilience
- Social Connections
- Concrete Supports
- Social and Emotional Competence of Children
- Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development
- Nurturing and Attachment
Neighborhood Development work is primarily funded by Community Connections through the Department of Children and Families (DCF), whose goal is to build a comprehensive continuum of family support that strengthens families, communities and prevents child abuse and neglects through neighborhood-based and resident-driven programming.
