The Jackson County Family Resource Center (JCFRC) has a strong commitment to the families in our area. The primary focus of the JCFRC is to support and enhance the presence of healthy children and strong families in a caring community, while fostering personal development. All programs sponsored by the JCFRC have as their mission to provide a warm welcoming environment where community and family members may access and find information about all types of services available to families and individuals. We offer many exciting programs including parenting classes, respite care for children and seniors, a Parents as Teachers program, and literacy programs. There are also computers on site for public use.
