The purpose of this study was to identify the perceived needs of participants at the Rosemount Family Resource Center as well as to explore if the family resource center was making an impact in the participant's level of social support and connection to the community. The hope was to have a clearer idea of what the participants need and to meet those needs through services and programs offered at the family resource center. One of the goals of the family resource center is to create a community where its residents feel supported and take that feeling of support back to their own family and neighbors. A survey was completed by 18 clients who used the family resource center during a four week time period. The findings indicated that the family resource center is making an impact in providing people with a sense of community and support as well as providing much needed concrete services to children and families.
