TUCKER COUNTY FAMILY RESOURCE NETWORK, AN ONGOING SUCCESS STORY…
The TCFRN is a non-profit agency, est. in 1995. The vision of a handful of people to work together to improve the lives of children & families became a reality thanks to a small grant from the Governors Cabinet on Children & Families. Over the past 23 years we have grown by leaps and bounds, to include the Family Resource Center & Allegheny Highlands Parents as Teachers Program. Expanding from a small staff of 1 to employing 17 professionals who work together to educate & support the community. We also coordinate the TC Drug Free Coalition and Partners in Prevention Team – both of these local groups focus on substance abuse, neglect and violence prevention programming and education activities in Tucker County.
The TCFRN continues to refine current programming as well as exploring new initiatives and opportunities. Over the past 2 decades we’ve provided local resource coordination and utilized our combined expertise to coordinate a wide range of family centered programming.
In 2016 we secured over $45,000 in donations both monetary and in-kind; Partnered with more than 70 local, regional and state agencies to streamline family support services; Coordinated dozens of volunteers who logged over 1500 hours; Leveraged over $400,000 in grant funding to provide prevention education and critical support to local residents.
Our Goals and Objectives adhere to the “5 Protective Factors” of effective early care & family education programming which enhances and promotes the following:
1. Parental Resilience 2. Social Connections 3. Knowledge of parenting and child development 4. Concrete support in times of need 5. Social and emotional competence of children
