Family Resource Center of Truckee
To promote social and economic success in our community by providing education, mobilizing resources and advocating for change.
Who We Are
The Family Resource Center of Truckee (FRCoT) was conceived in August 2001 by a group of public and private agencies, community parents and advocates for the underserved populations in the Truckee area. Our mission is to promote social and economic success by providing education, mobilizing resources and advocating for change. We are a one-stop resource center for underserved families and individuals in our community — providing concrete support and safety-net services in times of need. All programs build on family strengths and are delivered through strategies of prevention, education, support and networking in collaboration with other resources and partner agencies. By working with a large range of community partners, the FRCoT is able to leverage in-kind and direct services without duplicating valuable resources.
