What is a Family Resource Center

A family resource center is a central location where residents can come to receive a wide variety of services, including help in an immediate crisis as well as ongoing services that reduce the overall reliance on government services. 

Catholic Charities’ goal is to have a multi-generational impact in the counties served. Executive Director Judy K. Orr said “Tennessee Serves Neighbors” will provide both a safety net for families in crisis and enhanced services that foster independence from government support for multiple generations. The program will focus on job training, life skills (e.g. financial management), and building healthy, stable families. A key partner in each county will be healthcare providers who will help people manage their health and navigate resources in their region. 

Local Teams

Each Family Resource Center will have a dedicated team of 3-4 people who understand and champion the unique needs of their community every day.

All teams will have access the collective expertise and experience of Catholic Charities through the Country Expansion Program director who oversees Tennessee Serves Neighbors.

Leveraging the Catholic Church Network

Catholic Charities will leverage the large Catholic Church parish network to provide volunteers and family mentors. Ultimately, Tennessee Serves Neighbors could become a model for other Catholic Charities agencies serving East and West Tennessee.
