“We couldn’t have pulled this off without the generosity and support of local businesses and individuals and the community in general,” said Robin Hice, a Family Resource Center Board of Directors member and the organizer of Strike Out Child Abuse. “The Family Resource Center must work hard to meet the needs of families in our area on a shoestring budget. We are very thankful for and in need of further monetary support. The center is also fortunate to have outstanding staff members that are passionate about their work. They perform the daily hands-on work that is so crucial to supporting the families we work with.”
Jason Sanker, president of the Family Resource Center, said the mission of the board is to offer education and support services to families in order to enhance parenting and life skills and prevent incidents of abuse and neglect.
