Greater Tilton Area Family Resource Center
The mission of the Greater Tilton Area Family Resource Center is to strengthen and empower families and the Greater Tilton Area Community by promoting health, well-being, and self-sufficiency through positive relationships, support, collaboration and education.
Our vision is to be a Family Resource Center of Quality, operating by National Standards of Quality for Family Supports and the Council of Accreditation of Peer Recovery Support Services. Substance use and poverty are the leading concerns brought to our Community Meetings. These two issues affect all of our community families either directly or indirectly. Our programs and services aim to meet our mission, and create a welcoming place that all community members can feel welcome to ask questions and find connection with people, resources, information and more…
Our two generational approach, working with parents, grandparents and children, led to the growth of parent education and peer recovery supports, as we see children in our community impacted by poverty and the substance use in our area plaguing families. We believe that prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery from the hurts, habits and hang-ups that parents face today, are all tied together.
We believe that as a community, we can change a life course trajectory for a child when comprehensive, customized, strength based supports are accessed by parents and grandparents, friends and relatives.
All are welcome, in a judgement free environment, to access supports based on their shared needs, or to volunteer with us.
We strongly hold to the philosophy of Strengthening Families, that protective factors are good for all, and risk factors exist for all… and that all families may benefit from our services at some time
