Since 1996, the Family Resource Center has provided free services to help strengthen families. The services include a home visitation program (that provides support to parents), a children’s clothing exchange program, a library of equipment for those with special needs, support for foster families, school supply giveaway, Christmas gift assistance, Prairie Land food program, referrals to other agencies & services, resource libraries, and co-sponsoring events to benefit children and families.
Big Give McCook funds will be used to help us provide direct services to families. We serve an average of 75 families per week. Last year our services helped more than 2,000 different people from hundreds of families from Southwest Nebraska and Northwest Kansas.
