Where Family and Community Come Together
The East Troy Family Community Resource center recognizes the value of partnering with schools, businesses and the community to form a healthy atmosphere of learning, support and individual growth. We work cooperatively with the local schools to enhance the programming they are already offering to families. We support local businesses by working with them to help educate community members in a variety of ways on the issues that affect their lives and how they can be served by their own community. More than anything, we provide a warm home like environment where no one is ever turned away and where acceptance and support can be found in abundance.
The Family Resource Center is located at 2040 Beulah Avenue in the rear of the Doubek Administration Building in East Troy, Wisconsin. There is a parking lot behind the building and visitors can use the rear entrance, use the long driveway located next to 2019 Division Street. We can be reached by phone at 262-642-4900 or e-mail at [email protected]. You can also click the link above for our facebook page and connect with us through there and for further information.
Strengthening Families and Community Through Education, Information and Support
We offer children and family craft nights periodically throughout the year and Friday Mornings in the summer from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. The Family Activity Nights are designed to bring parents and children together to work cooperatively on a variety of projects like luminaries, stepping stones and seasonal crafts. Check out our blog posts for current offerings.
The FRC holds a Play Group every Friday morning throughout the year. We meet at the resource center from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. during the school year. This program gives children who normally are at home the opportunity to meet other children. This is a great time for little ones to socialize and learn the valuable lessons of sharing, cooperation and fair play. This also provides caregivers an opportunity to connect with other parents and caregivers in the community.
Our Alphabet Adventures program is a pre-school class held every Tuesday morning from 9:30 to 10:00 a.m. that focuses on a different letter each week. Children practice important skills such as coloring, cutting, pasting, counting, writing and color and letter recognition. This class also helps children to develop listening skills, follow directions and pay attention in a class like setting. During summer we offer our Story Crafters Program in it's place which includes a story time and associated craft.
New in 2019 is our K-Kids Program which will be working with select 3-5th graders at Prairie View Elementary School. The program is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Greater East Troy and will focus on empowerment, leadership and community service involvement for our youngest East Troy Citizens. Children involved with program will have the ability to continue this pursuit through the Builder's Club program at East Troy Middle School and the Key Club program at East Troy High School.
Our annual Easter Egg Hunt was established in the spring of 2006. This event is typically held two Saturday's prior to the Easter weekend and includes pictures with the Easter Bunny, coloring pages, an Easter Egg Hunt and of course prizes and candy.
