Swain County Family Resource Center
We are here to help you
Swain County Family Resource Center (SCFRS) is a (charitable) organization dedicated to helping families. We serve families in Swain and Graham counties and the Cherokee Indian Reservation. Our services include helping provide food, clothing, shelter, utility assistance, career readiness and family support for the elderly.
While every effort is made to help those who are struggling, we also, and partly for that reason, try to eliminate waste and duplication of services. Every client who wants assistance needs to fill out an application. This information is then cross referenced with information from the Department of Social Services and other service providers. In so doing we have found we can eliminate waste and giving to those who have already received assistance. We believe this is an important part of honoring our donors and those who give us help and financial assistance.
