    History

    In 1993, school-based Family Resource Centers were developed as specified in T.C.A. § 49-2-115 to address the potential risk factors within the home and community environments which impede or create barriers to a child’s ability to learn and grow successfully. Potential risk factors include but are not limited to poverty, hunger, homelessness, abuse, neglect, poor health, mental illness, substance abuse and/or family conflict. Family Resource Centers network with community organizations to coordinate problem-solving and goal-setting processes with parents while assisting them to create a supportive environment and meet the needs of their children.
