Support

Citrus County Family Resource Center is a private not for profit corporation under 501 - C3.

We do not receive government funding, so we work from day to day with whatever funds are available funds from individual donations and those from churches and service organizations.. This community is very generous and has allowed us to continue for over 40 years.

In addition to being funded by local individuals, our staff is comprised of volunteers. We are always in need of help.

We can use help in the form of volunteer time, large or small monetary donations or donations of materials that can be used to run the office or help families.

We especially need:

  •  Children's clothing that is in good repair

  • Women's nightgowns and pajamas.

  • Tents, tarps, and sleeping bags

  •  Small mens clothing

When the donor has large items like furniture, we match up families and donors because we do not have room to store these large items. For smaller items like linens or dishes or food, we can make space to store until we receive requests.

If there is a crib or stroller or high chair taking up space in your storage area, we would be happy to give it a new home with a young struggling family. We ask families to use these items and then pass them along to another family. span>

At the end of summer, there is a need for school supplies and back packs. Later in the year, there is a special need for toys and new clothing for Christmas presents. Every item helps. People contact us for information about a particular child and then buy gifts for that child. Some people buy a toy or underwear or jacket for those children who do not have a sponsor.

If you would like to volunteer your time and talents helping others, we have a place for you. Please fill out our volunteer form and a representative iwll contact you. If you would rather stop by to see what we do and ask questions, please feel free to come by any week day between 9:30 and 4:30.
