The Family Center’s mission is to build resourceful families and healthy children to create a strong community.

For Children

Children are our most valuable resource. What a child doesn’t receive he can seldom later give.

For Youth

Increasing the active participation and partnership with young people, to better serve them.

For Families

Each family has strengths and can take a primary role in its own development.

🌟More reason to celebrate! Thank you Senators!BIG NEWS! The Vermont Senate unanimously gave preliminary approval to a bill that would bring Universal School Breakfast to all Vermont schools by 2022. The bill would make Vermont the first state in the nation to provide breakfast free of charge to all public school students every school day. The Senate is expected to give final approval to the bill on Friday, and then it will move to the House for consideration.

The Senate also committed to a path to providing full Universal School Meals (breakfast and lunch) to all public school students by directing a task force to develop a plan to provide universal lunch by the 2026-27 school year. Thank you to all of our partners and Senators for making this possible - we are well on our way to ensuring no Vermont child learns what hunger feels like at school!

What We Do

For Children

Child development is a process that involves learning and mastering skills like sitting, walking, talking, skipping, and tying shoes.

For Youth

Positive youth development services engage young people in intentional, productive, and constructive ways, while recognizing and enhancing their strengths.

For Families

All families should have access to economic and parenting supports to ensure all children have nurturing and stable relationships with caring adults.

Take Action

Every year, Vermont saves $2,131,041 when each of Vermont’s 15 Parent Child Centers prevents:

  • One woman from entering a correctional facility;
  • One teen pregnancy.
  • One child from needing foster care placement; and
  • One mother and child from requiring public assistance.

Help children thrive

3,377 individuals served in Central Vermont from July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020
