History
In 1997, the Social Influences on Early Development and Learning class at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay was presented with the opportunity to assist the Black Creek community with establishing a family resource center using money from a GOALS 2000 grant. Student research, combined with information from a Seymour Community School District needs assessment developed during the GOALS 2000 grant process, indicated a strong need for family support and parent/child education among parents of birth to five-year olds in the community. The Family Resource Center was officially established in the fall of 1998 in the Black Creek Elementary/Middle School.

As a Graduate Degree project in 2002, two Seymour Elementary School teachers researched the need for a family resource center in the Seymour community. This research also established a need for a family support program and parent/child education in the Seymour community. The new family resource center was located in the Seymour Middle School. Since both resource centers were located within the Seymour School District and housed within district schools, the programs were consolidated and Community Family Resource Centers, Inc. (CFRC) was formed. The Seymour site began programming in the fall of 2003.

The school district then hired a new business manager who thought the resource center should be a separate entity from the school. To that end, the school district paid the attorney fees and assisted in establishing Community Family Resource Centers, Inc. as a 501(c)(3) organization in March 2004. In June 2005, we became our own fiscal agent, apart from the Seymour Community School District. The school district continues to house both locations and provides a tremendous amount of in-kind assistance.

Community Family Resource Centers, Inc. became an agency of the United Way Fox Cities in December 2002.
