The Family Resource Center for Norfolk County is located in Quincy and is hosted by Bay State Community Services. The Quincy Family Resource Center is a free community-based service that is designed to be a single point of entry for families with children under the age of 18 (including parents, guardians, grandparents, caregivers, youth, and family members) to access behavioral health supports, community services, resources, and information.
We understand the many challenges of parenting and the complexity of the many systems your family may be involved with including schools, Social Services, State Agencies, and the Court System. Our goal is to help you and your family identify what would be helpful to your family. Based on your needs, our knowledgeable and dedicated staff will help you with referrals, services, and supports.
Every family has different needs and, depending on your needs, we offer three levels of support:
- Assessments and Family Support Planning
- Resources and Referrals
- Groups, Community Events & Activities
The Family Resource Center provides:
- Parent Education Groups
- Peer-to-Peer Groups (for youth and adults)
- Information and Assistance (for families needing access to health, safety, employment training, education and recovery supports)
- Cultural, Social, and Recreational Events (for families and youth)
- Children Requiring Assistance (CRA) Services (for children who are having serious problems at home and at school, including runaways, truants, and sexually exploited children)
