Social & Emotional Learning Support
Family Resource Centers provide a stable, neighborhood-based resource for direct service that reinforces good parenting, decreases social isolation, and establishes a community network and connections for families.
The enhanced-core services encourage the development of relationships between caregivers and opportunities to connect with their community. These services include group exercise, self-defense, support groups, infant safe-sleep workshops, play-groups, car seat classes, community leadership and after-school tutoring for kids, along with community celebrations and events.
