The Family Resource Center is a family and human service agency serving the greater Peekskill area. We were granted non-for-profit 501©(3) status in 1986. Our mission is to build support and resources within communities that strengthen and empower individuals and families, and enhance their capacities as individuals, family members, and parents. Our storefront office is easily accessed by public transportation.
We maintain an “Open Door Policy” that welcomes everyone regardless of race, national origin, or any other categorization on a “walk-in” basis.
Trained professionals experienced in administration, clinical, and case management services staff the center. We have been a part of Peekskill for over 20 years; we know our community and its social, charitable and housing resources from quality experience. We are proud of our excellent working relationship with neighboring agencies and service providers. We also have an excellent rapport with federal, state, and local government institutions.
The Family Resource Center offers a variety of services and programs that can meet the needs of families at many different levels. Along with workshops and assistance with the purchase and mortgaging of a home, we also have a Supportive Housing Program with a limited number of emergency and affordable housing units in the greater Peekskill area. We also administer the rental or purchase of permanent housing units. We accept referrals from Westchester County Department of Social Services and the Section 8 Program. There is a small “emergency need bank” that includes food, clothing, and furniture on a case-by-case basis. When fees are applicable, they are on a sliding scale basis.
