Who We Are

Our Mission

The DCFRC's mission is to provide programs, services, and referral services designed to improve the quality of life as well as promote the safety and well-being of the children and families in the Dallas County community.

Our Purpose:

Our primary goal is to provide our community with a "one-stop" resource center that assesses the needs of low income families and individuals and connects them with the appropriate resources. The DCFRC also seeks to provide strengths-based case management and create programs where there are gaps in existing services, identify and alleviate barriers, and empower families to better cope with and overcome obstacles that prevent them from having financial independence. Our staff also works in a collaborative effort to create individualized treatment plans and work to educate and empower our clients.

Our staff includes a licensed counselor, two professional social workers, and two volunteer receptionists, among our hard working staff and volunteers. the Family Resource Center has also established a board of directors with twelve currently active board members from the community.
