Greater Franklin Area Family Resource Center
Peer Recovery Support, Family Support, Parent Education, and Training Issues of substance use and poverty are the leading concerns brought to our Community Meetings. These two concerns affect families, either directly or indirectly and have been exacerbated by parental stress due to the impact of COVID-19. Our programs and services aim to meet our mission, and create a welcoming place that all community members can feel welcome to ask questions and find connections with people, resources, information and more… Our two-generation approach, working with parents, grandparents, and children, led to the growth of parent education, kinship navigation and peer recovery supports. We believe that prevention, intervention, treatment, and sustaining recovery from the hurts, habits and hang-ups that are faced today, are all tied together. We believe that as a community, we can change a life course trajectory for a child when comprehensive, customized, strength-based supports are accessed by parents and grandparents, friends and relatives. All are welcome, in a judgment-free environment, to access supports based on their shared needs, or to volunteer with us.
