How We Serve
The Family Center at Community Connections of Brockton works as part of the network of Massachusetts Family Resource Centers (FRCs). Family Resource Centers (FRCs) are a statewide network of community-based providers offering multi-cultural parenting programs, support groups, early childhood services, information and referral resources and education for families whose children range in age from birth to 18 years of age.
The Family Center proudly serves the 27 communities with Plymouth County. Our goal is to provide easy access to information and assistance related to health care, safety, employment training, education and peer support. In each of our communities, our goal is to support families to strengthen their bonds, connect to others, and engage in their community. Our core values are: RESPECT, TRUST, SAFETY, WELLNESS, CARING, CONNECTIVITY, and EDUCATION.
FRCs are supported through funding from the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF).
