Family Resource Center
CHAC’s Family Resource Center (FRC) collaborates with FIRST 5 Santa Clara County and other community partners to offer programs that help parents and other caregivers understand the importance of physical and social-emotional development during the first years of life and early school years, along with the family and community engagement needed to build strong communities.
FRC classes, events and individual consultations foster ways of building and maintaining a healthy connection between parent and child and increasing resilience in the family. Family Resource Center staff also trains a dedicated group of volunteers - many who have started as participants - who continue to carry out our vision to encourage further community involvement.
