Community Bulletin Board

Interns at the FRC take turns making a bulletin board based on specific theme. As a result, you can visit this page each month to learn about a new topic in an interactive display. In addition, you can visit the Center to see the board in person. Looking for a past month’s topic? Check out our bulletin board archive. Thank you to Chinaelo Chukwuelue for the October bulletin board on COVID-19 vaccination information!

About the Family Resource Center

In 2010, the Board of County Commissioners, Partnership for Strong Families, SWAG, and dozens of local businesses began working together and joined forces (both financial and manpower) to create a brick-and-mortar community center. As a result, the county purchased a building in the center of the SWAG neighborhoods. Through the hard work and generous contributions of both the public and private sectors, the renovated building became the SWAG Family Resource Center. Then, in June of 2012, the Resource Center opened its doors. Soon thereafter, a playground opened on an adjacent lot.

The Center functions as a three-way partnership. Specifically, the county owns it, Partnership for Strong Families operates it, and SWAG supports and advises it. As a result of this partnership, the Center offers computers and internet access, printing & copying, faxing, books, games and toys for children, and referrals for services. For example, the Resource Center has offered the following programs:

  • After-school tutoring programs
  • Summer programs for kids
  • Food pantry
  • Health and exercise programs
  • Free notary services
  • Counseling services
  • Parenting supports
  • Regular Bookmobile visits
  • Clothing closet
  • Codes enforcement information
  • Monthly Community Dinners
  • Social services
  • And much, much more!
