Family Resource Center – Upper Valley

Waypoint ‘s Upper Valley Family Resource Center (FRC) is part of our network of resource centers across the state. While each regional FRC offers something a little different, all the centers strengthen families by promoting health, wellbeing, and self-sufficiency through supports and parenting education.

Waypoint’s Upper Valley Family Resource Center (FRC) is located in downtown Lebanon on the Advance bus route, and across the street from the LISTEN food pantry.

Our staff helps NH and VT families find resources and services to meet basic needs, make connections, and get support. We offer a wide range of classes and groups for free, and all are welcome. For NH families, we provide Healthcare Coordination for families raising children with chronic healthcare conditions, and Community-Based Voluntary Services to preserve families at risk. We also offer clothing, diapers, and other products to meet basic needs.

Waypoint is part of a statewide network of Family Resource Centers.
