Programs and services that make a difference for the whole family
Our programs and services fall under three main pillars: Family Support, Food Programs, and Education. Friendly Center’s 15+ wraparound programs offer struggling families the unique opportunity to find resources that combat the various intersecting barriers of poverty while meeting their immediate needs. Food insecurity, joblessness, mental health emergencies, and lack of educational opportunities are often cyclical issues for low-income families – Friendly Center’s multifaceted, holistic approach of providing assistance through a variety of programs effectively helps these families transition from crisis to self-sufficiency.
