For nearly 40 years, Family-Child Resources has been providing families and children in our community with services that help them overcome challenges and difficulties. In 2010 we introduced the Heart of FCR as a way to address these needs and provide a more comprehensive approach to help those we serve. Designed to be a source of emergency assistance, the Heart of FCR helped children and families with clothing, books, and toys in its first year.
Thanks to an outpouring of donations from local businesses, past clients, our board members and staff, we started a boutique that is open-year round which can provide families with clothing, toys, books, and baby supplies. In addition to these items, the Heart of FCR can help with emergency expenses. When families face a challenge that requires more than what the boutique can offer, we work closely with them to resolve the emergency and put them in touch with other community resources who are better equipped to provide long-term assistance.
The Heart of FCR is made possible because individuals and businesses in our community have given of their resources, time, and talents to support our vision for the Heart of FCR.
How can you get involved? There are many ways you can help the Heart of FCR through donations, volunteering, or just opening your heart to those in need.
