Strengthening Communities

Our network of Family Resource Centers works to lift up our most underserved neighbors. We do this by providing a safe, welcoming space where children, families and seniors can access services and opportunities that empower them to lead stable, healthy and productive lives.

With seven Family Resource Centers throughout Greater Nashville, we provide community-led services and opportunities tailored to meet the specific needs and cultures of the surrounding area. Just as each neighborhood is unique, so are the needs of its residents. The families we serve often face challenges like poverty, unemployment, low academic achievement, rent burden, single-parent households, lack of transportation and more.

In response to these challenges, our Family Resource Centers provide residents not just with a central location for services but also a sense of belonging and a voice in defining the most pressing needs and possible solutions for their own neighborhoods. Services offered include food, clothing, books, supplies, counseling services, referrals, employment resources and more.

For an in-depth look at how a Center serves its community please read, A Model in Community-Led Service.
