Welcome to the UC Davis MIND Institute and Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (CEDD) resource page for Family Resource Centers


Family Resource Centers Network of California (FRCNCA)

The mission of the FRCNCA is to support families of children with disabilities, special healthcare needs, and those at risk by ensuring the continuance, expansion, promotion and quality of family-centered, parent-directed, family resource centers.

What are Family Resource Centers?

Family Resource Centers are mandated as part of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). They are staffed by families of children with special needs and offer parent-to-parent support and help parents, families, and children locate and use needed services. They offer support services and resources in many languages, which may include newsletters, resource libraries, websites, parent-to-parent groups, sibling support groups, warmlines, and information and referral for parents and professionals.
