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 Executive Office of Health and Human Services in collaboration with the Department of Children and Families (DCF)

Testimonials

“I am so grateful and I cannot say enough about how much NFI and (Jen) personally have helped me. Whenever I start to lose it, which is usually several times a day, I close my ... eyes and envision myself sitting and talking to (Jen) and Audrey and Gabriel and the rest of (Jen’s) team and the energy at NFI, and it really calms me.”
