Family Support Services

The Children & Family Resource Center directly touches the lives of nearly 2,500 Henderson County residents a year through programs and services and indirectly, 3,000 children through early childhood professionals. Among the many issues that affect our children in our community are: poverty, child abuse and neglect, teen pregnancy, the need for quality and affordable childcare, early onset of behavioral issues and developmental delays.

Our programs provide support and services to families in need,
helping to alleviate the some of these issues.
