Our network of Family Neighborhood Resource Centers works to lift up our most underserved neighbors. We do this by providing a safe, welcoming space where children, families and seniors can access services and opportunities that empower them to lead stable, healthy and productive lives.
With six Family Neighborhood Resource Centers (FNRC) throughout the Greater Capital Region, we provide community-led services and opportunities tailored to meet the specific needs and cultures of the surrounding area. Just as each neighborhood is unique, so are the needs of its residents. The families we serve often face challenges like poverty, unemployment, low academic achievement, rent burden, single-parent households, lack of transportation, and more.
In response to these challenges, our FNRCs provide residents with a central location for services, a sense of belonging, and a voice in defining the most pressing needs and possible solutions for their own neighborhoods. Services offered include food, clothing, books, supplies, counseling services, referrals, employment resources, etc.
The Goals of the FNRC Program are:
To provide basic needs and short-term assistance in times of crisis;
To provide long-term solutions to the strains placed on local individuals & families;
To serve as a local leader in ensuring communities are safe, stable and interconnected so that individuals and families thrive.
