Family Resource Centers (FRCs) serve as valuable places for low-income children, young adults, and families to participate in counseling, education, employment training, tutoring, recreational, health, career counseling, Tae Kwon Do, anti-drug, and anti-violence programs. The sites also serve as centers to enlist participation in such well-known programs as the Olney and Rockville Boys and Girls Clubs, the Girl Scouts, Montgomery Youth Works and others.
Each center offers its own schedule of activities based on the needs and desires of the community. Centers operate up to 12 hours a day, six days a week to provide services convenient to those at home and in the work force.
Residents are encouraged not only to participate in programs, but to volunteer their own skills to help with the center operations.
