In 2019, our Family Resource Center offered programming and support to 640 families. In 2023, we are on track to serve more than 900 families! We can’t meet the needs of these families in our current 1,500 square foot facility in Wallingford. We’ve secured a 3,000 square foot space at Cedar Crossing, a family-focused affordable housing complex, located at the Roosevelt Light Rail Station in the Roosevelt neighborhood. Once the move is complete, we will reach nearly 20% more families across the Family Resource Center’s programming.
Families entering our new home will find a trusted place where they can ask for help and be embraced by our community with respect and dignity.
Through on-site programs such as playgroups and positive parenting classes, caregivers can not only build relationships and lasting social connections right in their neighborhood, but also find tools to support their children at every stage of development.
