Resources to support you
During this COVID-19 Outbreak, We're Here to Help You

COVID-19 is creating a lot of worry and fear for families. The FRC Network is here and ready to provide whatever support we can. We've created a special Resources to Support You During this COVID-19 Pandemic section on this website. And Mass 2-1-1 and the Department of Children and Families are here to help you during this time with additional information and resources.

Following guidance from the State of Massachusetts, all FRCs are serving the community, and available to support families. Some of the FRCs are not physically open, but are providing assistance to families by phone. These are:

There is also helpful information available on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health websites.

This is a challenging time for all but we are all going to get through it. We are here to help.

About Family Resource Centers

Massachusetts Family Resource Centers (FRCs) are a statewide network of community-based providers offering multi-cultural parenting programs, support groups, early childhood services, information and referral resources and education for families whose children range in age from birth to 18 years of age. A Family Resource Center is located in each of the 14 Massachusetts counties to provide easy access to information and assistance related to health care, safety, employment training, education and peer support. In each of our communities, our goal is to support families to strengthen their bonds, connect to others, and engage in their community. Our core values are: RESPECT, TRUST, SAFETY, WELLNESS, CARING, CONNECTIVITY, and EDUCATION.

FRCs are supported through funding from the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF).

If you are interested in learning more about the FRCs, the work we do, the people we serve, and the impact we have had on families across the state, please read our executive summary.
