Family Advocacy

Family Advocacy at Families Forward Resource Center

Family support and advocacy is at the heart of Families Forward Resource Center's mission --as are our family advocates on staff. FFRC provides family support programs to families following principals specified by Family Support America and the Family Resource Center Association (FRCA), such as the value of working with families through relationships based on equality and respect.

When a family calls, Families Forward Resource Center advocates tap into a network of community resources to find the assistance it needs. Some of the support provided to families includes referrals to community resources, assistance with family visitation, crisis counseling, emergency utility assistance, and enrollment in public benefits.  FFRC provides family support services to an estimated 2,000 families.
