We’re starting the new year off with an incredible organization: the San Juan Island Family Resource Center!
The Family Resource Center was founded in 1998 as a local resource for quality early childhood support programs. As time went on and our community changed and grew, SJIFRC stepped in to meet the demand for social support services for all islanders in need. Today, they are the primary referral and resource center for over 1,000 island families!
The Family Resource Center provides youth mentoring, parenting classes, and parent-child playgroups that help reduce child abuse and optimize child development and family well-being. They also provide assistance with many of the basic necessities of life such as emergency rental and utilities assistance, transportation, mental health counseling and access to medical care. Learn more about their many amazing services on their website!
