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.
