Our mission is to strengthen children, families, and communities by offering education, resources, and support.

Family Resource Center St. Croix Valley is a nonprofit organization that offers free parent education and family support to families in Pierce, Polk, and St. Croix counties. We are funded by private grants, contracts, and donations. In addition, the Family Resource Center is a funded partner of United Way St. Croix Valley and Success By 6 vendor.

A 1998 assessment by the St. Croix County Department of Health and Human Services and University of Wisconsin-Extension identified a need for increased support for local families with young children, especially teen parents. In response, the Family Resource Center St. Croix Valley was formed and obtained our 501(c)(3) non-profit status in 1998. With an original name of St. Croix Family Resource Center, the organization initially served only St. Croix County before expanding services to include Pierce, Polk, and St. Croix Counties and changing its name to Family Resource Center St. Croix Valley in 2006. Our main office remains on Main Street in Baldwin, but Family Resource Center group meetings and home visits occur throughout Pierce, Polk, and St. Croix counties.
