The mission of the Nantucket Family Resource Center is to offer family resources, assistance, and guidance to help Nantucket families achieve their goals through a range of programs that foster a nurturing family environment.

The Nantucket Family Resource Center is committed to supporting children, teens, young adults and their families by providing information, resources, programs, and referral services which fit their needs. We work with our many community providers to provide FREE, comprehensive family support from birth to adolescence.

The Nantucket Family Resource Center believes that with insight and practice, parents and caregivers can recognize their strengths and become effective teachers, listeners, and sources of guidance and stability. Children raised in nurturing environments are much more likely to have positive lifelong physical, emotional and academic outcomes. To this end, the Nantucket Family Resource Center offers a variety of FREE programming to empower individuals and their families.

In addition to empowering individuals and families, the Nantucket Family Resource Center places a strong emphasis on community collaboration. By actively engaging with local service providers, we ensure that our programs remain responsive to the evolving needs of Nantucket families. This collaborative approach enables us to address a wide spectrum of challenges that families may encounter. In this way, we hope to contribute significantly to the overall well-being of the community.
