|FAMILY RESOURCE CENTER|
The Family Resource Center (FRC) was established in 2006 and made possible by Federal Temporary Assistance to Needy Families funding through the State of Ohio and County of Summit Department of Job and Family Services. The mission of the FRC is to provide the youth and family with services aimed at increasing youth opportunities for success in school, work and life. Utilizing a case management model FRC case managers partner with clients to assess their needs, connect families to community resource providers, and monitor progress and support along with an array of special programming offered here at Court and within the community. Some of the different programming include tutoring, School to Work Program, Responder Program, and Truancy Mediation Program.
Residents of Summit County who are not court-involved are welcome to visit the FRC on a walk-in basis to access an array of health and human service information from our literature racks or apply for case management services. Community organizations and schools are welcome to refer families to the FRC for information and referral. Human service agencies are encouraged to provide brochures and program literature regarding their programs for professionals and families to access in the FRC.
