Non-profit Offers Access to Education for At-risk Youth

Wayne and Christine Foster, founders of My Family Resource Center, celebrated the grand opening of their non-profit today downtown.  The second of two locations, the Family Resource Center can be found in the old Boys & Girls Club building on 105 N.E. Front St.  Mayor Ronnie Rogers and Representative Bob Walls were present to welcome the non-profit to its new home.

Established as a non-profit since August 2009 My Family Resource is community based and family focused as it aims to provide support services that enable individuals to access education and training opportunities.    Mr. Foster commented that the Resource Center will “serve as a conduit to pull youth together and link them to the activities that are offered in the area. “ 

The services they provide include after school and summer activities, parent education workshops and classes, education and career preparation services, and computer literacy workshops.   These services are aimed at providing alternative activities for youth and families that are exposed to high-risk environments. 

Mr. and Mrs. Foster expect the Resource Center to have a positive impact on the Milford community.  They hope to “reduce the number of unsupervised children and youth engaged in passive behavior by increasing their involvement in volunteer and community activities.” My Family Resource will focus on youth mentoring and tutoring and parent education workshops to help provide better future for Milford families.
