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 currently recruiting members for our Board of Directors.  We are looking for parents of children with disabilities, age 0-26, who reside in Berkeley, Dorchester, or Charleston Counties.  We are also seeking professionals who work in fields dedicated to the well-being of children with disabilities.  If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please contact the FRC office at 843-266-1318 and ask to speak with Bev.

Honors to Our Own

“I have to serve” – that was one of Theresa Prioleau’s comments when she was interviewed by Octavia Mitchell with WCBD News Channel 2.  Last fall, Theresa was recognized as an “Everyday Hero” for her work in her school and her community.     Everyone who knows Theresa is well aware of her hard work & dedication to families in and around rural Berkeley County.  She has a special commitment to families of children with disabilities.  As noted by Channel 2,  she is “a dedicated community champion for Cross, whose lessons of love extend beyond the classroom.”  What’s more, she is a member of the FRC “Family” serving on our Board of Directors.  Theresa – Thanks for all You do!!
