An uplifted community, self-sufficient, strong, educated and empowered.

Mission
To provide comprehensive services that strengthen and support families with children, moving towards self-sufficiency.

Goal
The goal of Family Resource Centers is to develop healthy families who live in healthy communities.

History & Purpose
In the spring of 2001, the Department of Public Social Services, Children’s Services Division, initiated a Family Resource Center (FRC) Program. Four sites were selected as a result of surveying and identifying communities which would most benefit from these services. Family Resource Centers are located in the communities of Perris, Rubidoux, Desert Hot Springs, and Mecca, California. Each Family Resource Center functions as a hub for community services designed to improve family life, particularly for overburdened or disadvantaged families and children.

The FRC program focuses on seven core service types: parenting skills, self-sufficiency, community action, child abuse prevention services, information and referral services, education and literacy, and life skills.
