Service Provider Requirements and Application Process

Community Service Providers: Organizations interested in providing services at the Family Resource Centers must submit a Services Agreement Application.

  • Services offered must fulfill one or more of the four Pratice Methods.
  • Provide services at no cost to FRC clients.
  • Complete and submit a Service Agreement Application (acquired from the Family Resource Center) with supporting documents. An application packet may be obtained at the FRC. Approved Service Agreements are valid for five calendar years unless revoked. Revocation may occur for failure to perform services described within the scope of the agreement, engaging in criminal activity, or engaging in unauthorized activities prohibited within the FRC. A new Service Agreement, and all supporting documentation, must be re-submitted every 5 years for re-approval.
  • Complete and sign a Criminal Background Check Affidavit.
  • Receive approval from the DPSS. DPSS will have final written approval authority.

Please note, all applicants must provide services that fit within one of the four Practice Methods: Well-Being Services, Growth and Development, Civic Engagement, and/or Community Building (for full descriptions, see attached Terms and Conditions - Section IV. Contractor Responsibilities). Service providers who are under contract with DPSS will only provide those services which appear in the Program Statement Template within their contract.
