The Stafford Family Resource Center believes that parents are the foundation of a child's development.  The Stafford FRC works to support families by providing accessibility to community - based resources as well as parenting education programs.. We believe that through partnering with families, community agencies and the public school system, we can create positive health and developmental outcomes for children.

Parents as Teachers (PAT) is a nationally accredited parent education curriculum based on the concept that parents are a child's first and most important teacher.  Stafford FRC Home visitors are certified in PAT.  This curriculum is used during home visits and also during family connection times.

Groups are designed to encourage social and emotional learning while providing opportunities for parents/caregivers to interact with their children in a fun and developmentally enriching environment.
