Family Resource Center

Mission: The Bethel Family Resource Center supports healthy, strong families, school readiness, and positive school-home connections through supports for parents and caregivers, pre-school programs and family fun!

The Bethel FRC is Bethel School District program and is funded by United Way, Bethel School District and small grants and partnerships in the community.

Parents and caregivers of young children are our first and most important teachers.  Our programs promote healthy attachments between little’s and their grown-ups, support healthy social, emotional and intellectual development for children, and provide opportunities for everyone to learn and practice new skills. 

Fall 2021: We are excited to reopen our drop-in center when school re-opens in the fall.  We have lots of new experiences, toys and updates in our space. We have also added a lending library, with books to read with children and books for parents and caregivers.

September 2021: Join us for our Open House!
