The Eliot Family Resource Center recently celebrated their second anniversary! Located at the old Everett high school, the resource center has helped over 1300 families from Everett and surrounding communities in the two years it has been open.
Volunteer of the year awards were given to Valentina, from Malden, and Evelyn, from Everett, recognizing their hundred of hours of community service, from cleaning toys, sorting produce for the food pantry, to helping wrap presents for the holiday event, and staffing tables at outreach events.
School administrators and elected officials from the area came together to celebrate the center’s success and to hear the ways in which families can continue to be supported as a whole to prevent CRAs and other pertinent issues. With no residency or income requirements, families can feel welcome and be supported through services and activities at the center, and also be connected to additional support services in the local area.
