The East End Family Resource Center was organized by the East End Coalition for Families in 2001. The Coalition comprised of residents, businesses, city leaders, and others believed that an East End Family Resource Center serving individuals and families living in the East End of Charleston would promote the well-being of the community and enable residents to use resources that are available. The Center also provides an opportunity to develop new programs that “fill the gaps” as needed.
In November 2016, the East End Family Resource Center officially became the Charleston Family Resource Center with the opening of the West Side Campus. The Center is now able to serve even more children and community members as we continue our mission of Building Bridges of Opportunity.
