Welcome to the Citrus County Family Resource Center
What Do We Do?
We provide the families of Citrus County with:
The Reception Area
At the center we strive to welcome our families into a warm and relaxed atmosphere where they can feel comfortable and at ease.
Our food pantry provides balanced food boxes for families in need including:
We are normally open 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM. Holiday hours will be posted.
This organization is an equal opportunity employer and provider.
The Clothes Closet
We hold parenting workshops 4-7 times a year to help parents with the difficult job of child rearing:
Bike to Work
We provide bikes for people to use as transportation.
Having transportation allows people to find work and eventually to leave the world of homelessness.
Some families who have a home are still not able to get from place to place and these bikes add to their quality of life.
All children look forward to Christmas, although some won't find any toys or gifts under the tree Christmas morning, unless we have your help. The children we help are referred from a number of sources. These include: Low Income Housing, The Centers, Economic Services, Foster care, subsidized child care, deaf services, and those that schools and teachers recognize in need.
The Citrus County Family Resource Center coordinates community sponsors who want to make Christmas brighter for area children. Children typically receive clothing, underwear, socks and some toys as well as special need items. In 2020 we provided gifts for 1,910
Connections Outreach Center
We were able to open the long awaited outreach center in 2011.
There are computers available for people to look for work and for people to send an email to family. There are two other computers available for people to use to apply for state services. This building is
located at 3848 E Parsons Point Road - near our former office.
The support from our staff of volunteers and our community sponsors is what makes our many programs possible.
