Crossing Rivers Health will be restructuring the services available through the Family Resource Center.

It is anticipated that the Family Resource Center will be closing on August 31, 2018.
Below is a detailed breakdown of the current plans for the services and programs of the Family Resource Center.

The resources of The Giving Shelf will continue to be available for families with young children that may be in need of diapers, formula, baby food, etc. They will also provide area families access to loaned educational toys, strollers, high chairs, cribs and other larger items through the Resource Lending Library. After August 31, anyone in need of these items, or wishing to donate, may visit Catholic Charities at 104 East Blackhawk Avenue, or call 608-326-1616.
