    Impact

    Over the last year, The East District Family Resource Center positively impacted the surrounding regarding three (3) broad areas:

    Supportive Services
    • 543 households received Emergency Food from our Emergency Food Pantry Program
    • 484 residents received necessary clothing for children, 1st time job opportunities, and/or hardships from Clothing Closet
    • 50 residents received heating assistance during the winter months through our MetroCare Heating Assistance Program

     Workforce Development 

    • 78 residents participated workforce development training opportunities to include: resume writing, basic computer classes, vocational awareness workshops
    Resource Referrals
    • 150 referrals were made to residents regarding other community resources
    Though we take pride in our ability to provide emergency food and clothing services for the community, it is our goal to be more strategic regarding self-sufficiency.  We look to provide more life transforming services regarding:
    • Health and wellness
    • Employability training
    • Social enterprise and entrepreneurship

     

     

      

    Needs

    In an effort to greater impact the East District Community, we would like to improve our ability better coordinate flow and delivery of services.  To do this effectively, needs of the East District Family Resource Center are:

     

    • Community Resources Coordinator
    • Volunteers to more effectively manage our clothing closet and emergency food pantry.
    • A revenue generating social enterprising effort to enhance our employability training programming.

     

    Background
    The East District Family Resource Center (FRC) was established in 1998 as one of the strategic outcomes of the Annie E. Casey Foundations's work with the Commonwealth of Virginia and the City of Richmond on the Children's Urban Mental Health Initiative beginning back in 1992.  The FRC was established with Casey Foundation's support allowing community residents to review national models for family suport services.  Residents decided to develop the FRC based on the National Family Center Coalition and Family Support America models.  Core services inlude needs assessments, basic family sustainablity supports (e.g., food pantry, clothes closet and utilities supports through the Metrocare program), educational programming, and social programming for youth, families and seniors.
