Family Resource Center’s services are primarily provided to children and families in which child abuse or neglect has occurred or is at risk of occurring. Additionally, therapeutic programs are available to strengthen parenting skills within families who may need a little extra help. Our goal is to help families grow stronger, no matter what the circumstances might be.

Our services are divided into three major service areas: Children, Families, and Teens. If you would like more information about one of our programs, click on the links below, email us or call us at 314.534.9350. We’re here to help.
