Nearly 40 years ago, Carroll County Council for the Prevention of Child Abuse (CCCPCA) was organized by parents who recognized an unmet need…assistance for families to improve the safety of children in Carroll County. As the agency continually added new programs, CCCPCA later changed its name to Family Resource Center, a human services, non-profit corporation.

Under the umbrella of Family Resource Center’s Waiver Program, FRC’s services include SCL (Supported Community Living), Respite, CDAC (Consumer-Directed Attendant Care), HAB (Home-Based Habilitation), and IMMT (Interim Medical Monitoring and Treatment). Additional services offered through FRC include Crisis Child Care, Parent Time-Out, and Child Care Projects.

FRC strengthens families by helping them become more self-sufficient; improving the quality of early childhood care; supporting children and adults with special needs in their homes; and keeping families and children “safe and nurtured,” as stated in FRC’s Mission Statement.

Nearly 40 years after this agency began as Carroll County Council for the Prevention of Child Abuse, Family Resource Center’s broad range of services are now offered in 23 counties within Iowa. Family Resource Center is able to provide a beacon of hope for a brighter future to the countless individuals and families it serves.
