The Tennessee Family Resource Center in Cumberland County, TN unlocks potential by proactively engaging with our local community to empower students and families, bridging gaps to ensure they evolve together through connected systems of support, unique to each community. Cumberland County strives to eliminate potential risk factors within the home and community environments which impede or create barriers to a child’s ability to learn and grow successfully. Potential risk factors include but are not limited to poverty, hunger, homelessness, abuse, neglect, poor health, mental illness, substance abuse, and/or family conflict. Our Family Resource Center networks with local community organizations to coordinate problem-solving and goal-setting processes with parents while assisting them to create a supportive environment and meet the needs of their children.
