The Children & Family Resource Center

The Children & Family Resource Center (CFRC) is a 501c3 non-profit organization located in Henderson County, NC. The CFRC was created in November, 1998 as a result of a Children’s Initiative of the Community Foundation of Henderson County which addressed the barriers that were preventing or impeding families from accessing local services. A high priority was given to consolidating services, promoting communication and collaboration, and simplifying access to children’s services. CFRC merged three separate non-profit agencies, adopted the ‘best practices’ of the agencies and began operation in April 1999 as a stronger, more efficient agency.

Today, CFRC offers programs that address the various aspects of early childhood development and education, quality child care, parenting and family support. In addition to our programs, the CFRC also serves as a referral center for clients who are in need of services in our community. We house a comprehensive early learning resource library for parents and care providers of young children.
