Gila Bend Family Resource Center

The Gila Bend Family Resource Center (FRC) gives parents and caregivers the tools they need to support the cognitive, emotional, and physical development of their young children. Funded in part by First Things First, the Gila Bend FRC is a place where families can be connected to the community resources they need - all in one place! Our focus is on early childhood literacy, parent education, nutrition, health, and child-centered activities.

The FRC offers several workshops, classes and educational clinics for young children and their parents or caregivers each month. Incentives are given for participation in all classes, workshops and clinics, families who participate in 8 or more classes are eligible for a quarterly field trip or special event.
