The Family Resource Center for Disabilities and Special Needs, Inc. (FRC) is a not for profit, 501(c) organization located in Charleston, South Carolina.  The FRC provides information services throughout the Lowcountry and was organized to promote opportunities for learning, inclusion, and empowerment for individuals with disabilities and special needs, their families, and their communities through such means as education, advocacy, and outreach.  The majority of seats on the Board of Directors is held by parents of children with disabilities under the age of 26.   Donations to the Center are tax deductible according to federal guidelines. The Board invites inquiries regarding the activities of The Family Resource Center and welcomes support from the tri-county area to accomplish our mission.

The Family Resource Center is committed to providing access to our web pages for individuals with disabilities. The content of this site has been tested for usability and accessibility using a combination of standards-based, automated procedures and accepted heuristic methods. All web pages conform to Section 508 of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Downloadable documents have been made as accessible as possible. Fully accessible versions of individual documents can be supplied on an as-needed basis by calling 843-266-1318 or by Email: bevmccarty@frcdsn.org.  We make every effort to comply with the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.  Section 508 requires that individuals with disabilities, who are members of the public seeking information or services from us, have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to that provided to the public who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on us.  Compliance is an ongoing process and we encourage notification when information on our website is inaccessible.
