Family Resource Centers

COA’s Harry and Rose Samson Family Resource Center (FRC) and its Ethel Nutis Gill FRC, provide fun, interactive activities and age-appropriate spaces for families with children ages birth to six. The centers offers drop-in programming that includes free play, art projects, reading, songs, snack and more (see schedule below). These FRCs also provide parents opportunities to socialize with and learn from one another, participate in parenting workshops, gain a deeper understand of early child development, and connect with a myriad of local resources that will support them in their role as parents and nurturers.
