Whole Village Family Resource Center
COVID-19 Update: Whole Village Family Resource Center is committed to the health of our community and understands connecting you to resources is more important than ever right now. We are currently open by appointment only. Give us a call at 603-536-3720!
Whole Village Family Resource Center’s purpose is to strengthen families while building a community that supports the healthy development of all children in the community. Our facility serves a dual purpose in the community. First, we are a family resource center offering an array of family support services, some of which are provided directly by the Whole Village team with others offered by our on-campus partners, and many that are integrated and collaboratively offered. Second, our 13,000 sq. ft. building provides community accessible meeting and program space to over 100 different groups and organizations each year.
Family Support Services
Whole Village Family Resource Center provides family support services using the Strengthening Families model. Strengthening Families is a research-informed approach to increase family strengths, enhance child development, and reduce the likelihood of child abuse and neglect. It is based on engaging families, programs, and communities in building five protective factors:
- Parental resilience
- Social connections
- Knowledge of parenting and child development
- Concrete support in times of need
- Social and emotional competence of children
The Exchange at Whole Village
The Exchange at Whole Village is a community learning space located in Plymouth where people connect, interact, and learn to inspire growth, family strength, and promote community engagement. The Exchange will connect low and moderate-income residents of eastern Grafton County with community resources and educational experiences to increase their financial capacity and resilience. The project will convene local agencies to create a “one-stop” approach to accessing the community and educational services necessary to move beyond poverty.
