The Children’s Board Family Resource Centers are located throughout Hillsborough County and offer programs and services emphasizing family support, child development, health and safety, and learning success.
Everyone is encouraged to visit to discover the many opportunities available for parents, children, teens and individuals. All programs and services are available at no cost. The Centers are designed to help families become happier, healthier and stronger in a refreshing, home-like environment where caring staff and members offer support, opportunities and new friendships.
The Children’s Board Family Resource Centers practice the Principals of Family Support and embrace the Five Protective Factors. The primary focus is parenting families with young children birth to age eight, however, the Centers do provide services without eligibility restrictions and all programs and services are available at no cost to any family or individual.

It functions as a collaborative partnership between agencies committed to families in our community including A!
