Discover how to Navigate in order to Advocate
The Family Resource Center (FRC) is a free resource locator service for all residents of Charles County. People living in Charles County and Community partners can also refer to the FRC for free resource location with the Systems Navigator. If eligible, short term case management, focused upon advocacy and connecting families to services, can be provided by the Family Navigator.
Being a parent is the most demanding and rewarding job you will ever have. Yet there isn’t a manual available to give you instructions when you have questions or need help. There is one place you can turn to for answers and support—The Family Resource Center. The Systems Navigator and Family Navigator can assist you with finding the resources you need to raise healthy and successful children.
The Family Navigator provides community-based case management and advocacy to support families with children less than 19 years of age who have behavioral or mental health needs. The Systems Navigator can provide resources and referrals for ANYONE in the county; regardless of family status (single, married, with children, with grown children, with no children, etc), income, or any other restrictions.
How it works –
- Speak with a System Navigator about the problems your family is facing.
- The Systems Navigator will tell you what programs and services can help, and how to contact them. They may refer you to the Family Navigator for additional services.
- Contact the programs yourself or have your Navigator help you get in touch with the services that can help your family be more happy, healthy, and successful.
All of our Navigator Services are free of Charge!
