TLC Family Resource Center

TLC Family Resource Center was founded in 1992. The mission of TLC Family Resource Center is to promote the optimal health and development of children and families in west central New Hampshire. To that end, we strengthen and support children, youth, and families with a wide range of free programs, parent education, support groups, and events. There are several programs under our umbrella. We have child and maternal home visiting programs that provide support through pregnancy and, in one program, up to the child's third birthday. In addition to providing critical information on child development from prenatal to three years and developmental assessments, we can also provide free cell phone service and a free rocking chair to qualifying families. We also have a program that serves families with children of any age.

These famlies may have short-term challenges and need some case management to help them get needed services and resources. TLC also has a teen pregnancy prevention program called SHINE (Sexual Health Information Network and Education) providing a comprehensive, evidence-based, inclusive, and medically accurate sexual health curriculum to young men and women, 16-21. Rural Outright is another program of TLC which supports the LGBTQIA+ community and their allies, especially LGBTQUIA+ youth.

In 2018, TLC took on the responsibility for the community's only peer recovery center, The Center for Recovery Resources, providing peer recovery coaches, community education, peer recovery groups, and a safe place for those who are striving to be successful in their recovery from substance use disorder.

Our recent exciting accomplishment has been the founding of The Center for Recovery Resources in 2018. In the last couple of years, we have been designated as the state's first Family Resource Center of Quality and we have completed the necessary work to be an officially accredited Healthy Families America center.

TLC Family Resource Center has an extensive website at www.tlcfamilyrc.org as well as several Facebook pages that highlight our work. Interested folks can also call the Executive Director at 603-542-1848 x 322 for a personal conversation about our services.
