The Resource Center Parents and Children (RCPC) has grown in size, strength, and commitment since 1973. RCPC was started by a small group of concerned Fairbanks citizens who met as the Fairbanks Child Protection Task Force (FCPTF) to discuss the problems of child abuse and neglect in the Fairbanks community. Over the years our programs and services have varied; however, all have focused on the same mission. The prevention of child abuse and neglect begins with strengthening the family structure, helping parents with parenting skills, and providing a safe place for parents to share and deal with parenting issues. The Resource Center for Parents and Children has been successful due to quality staff, programs and countless volunteers and social service agency partners. To all that have shared in our agency’s history, thank you.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Every Pick.Click.Give dollar that is generously donated to RCPC is used to support our programs that provide essential services to children and families throughout the Fairbanks North Star Borough and the Interior and Northern Regions of Alaska. RCPC’s programs are primarily funded through grant sources; however, community contributions and donations, including those through Pick.Click.Give, not only help in the provision of grant-funded services, but also allow RCPC to expand and enhance services that would otherwise be limited or unavailable. RCPC does not charge for any services provided. Therefore, the funds from Pick.Click.Give guarantee that RCPC can continue to provide quality services to all families. Your donation through Pick.Click.Give will be used to support the following:
• Expanded parenting education services to parents who need additional information on positive parenting practices, stress reduction strategies, breastfeeding/chestfeeding education and support, and effective parent-child communication;
• Necessary supplies for families participating in RCPC’s programs, including seasonally appropriate clothing, developmentally appropriate play and/or school supplies for children, food, and household items;
• Printing and distribution of outreach and education materials for families, including information on positive parenting practices, child development, nutrition for children and families, sexual abuse and harassment prevention, and child safety; and
• Medical evaluations, conducted at Stevie’s Place Child Advocacy Center, for children who have been sexually or physically abused.
