Mission and History


              Our mission is to connect services with needs. 

The South Nashville Family Resource Center (SNFRC) works with community residents in the Glencliff, Radnor, and Woodbine communities to solve challenges and make the neighborhoods stronger and healthier.             

What is an FRC?
United Way sponsors seven community-based Family Resource Centers in Davidson County.
United Way’s network of Family Resource Centers is the one-stop-shop for health and human service needs in neighborhoods.
  • Family Resource Centers (FRCs) serve 28,000 low income residents annually.
  • In 2008, FRCs delivered over 115,000 meals/food boxes and provided holiday assistance to more than 5,000 children, seniors, and families.
  • Overall, 958 individuals were served through the various adult education programs offered
  • Over 1,450 senior services were offered by FRCs last year.
  • Youth services provided at all FRCs resulted in more than 3,000 youth being active in tutoring, mentoring, recreation and enrichment activities

The Family Resource Center began in 2001 as Woodbine FRC at Woodbine Community Center. In July 2004, the Vanderbilt Center for Health Services assumed the role of the  lead agency for the family resource center. During this period of transition, the Advisory Council chose to change the name of the FRC to the South Nashville Family Resource Center to reflect the broader community that it serves, which includes the Radnor and Glencliff  neighborhoods. Residents of these adjacent neighborhoods have been active with the SNFRC for several years,  and the SNFRC activities embrace all three neighborhoods.
