Welcome to Family and Community Resources, Inc. (FCR). For nearly fifty years, we have continued to provide the best possible services for children, adolescents, and adult victims of trauma. Serving Southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod, and the Islands, FCR offers a variety of community-based services, with a special focus on services for survivors of domestic violence.
The grant from Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation will support victims and survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking in 6 locations across Southeastern Massachusetts including Brockton, Raynham, Quincy, and the Cape and Islands.
Patricia Kelleher, President & CEO of Family and Community Resources, Inc., states, "FCR has seen a dramatic increase in the number of identified cases of human trafficking of young women throughout our catchment area over the past few years. The funds awarded through Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation will not only provide direct bi-lingual services to survivors, but also the ability to provide training and presentations to our community partners. FCR does not work alone in addressing these issues, but with an array of other service providers seeking an end to violence in all forms."
Eastern's Targeted Grant program this year creates new opportunities and resources for women in areas where assistance is needed the most. The facts are staggering, here are two examples:
Bob Rivers, Chair & CEO of Eastern Bank said, "With each Targeted Grant, we aim to enhance the lives of our neighbors and contribute to real progress around the advancement of women in our local communities. On behalf of everyone at Eastern, we congratulate this year's Targeted Grant recipients and thank them for working to level the playing field."
And Thank You to FCR Board Member Deb Prepas for always keeping FCR on HarborOne's radar!
