Who We Are

MISSION AND VISION

The Upstate Family Resource Center's Mission is to help families thrive by providing educational opportunities, engaging activities and support services to achieve a healthier and more prosperous community.

OUR VISION IS TO BE THE RECOGNIZED LEADER IN STRENGTHENING FAMILIES.

HISTORY

Our journey began in 2007 when the Mary Black Foundation awarded a multi-year grant to Spartanburg School District Two.
The vision was to provide a one stop organization that would serve families in the District Two area.

Our comprehensive approach provides families the tools and guidance they need to become self-sufficient and strong. We believe that preparing individuals for the workforce, developing family engagement and coaching for success are vital strategies that build thriving families. Strong collaboration with community partners is the key to our success. The community stands behind UFRC, and places like United Way of the Piedmont, Spartanburg County Foundation, JM Smith Foundation, Walmart Foundation and others, along with the faith based community help make sure that our programs have the resources necessary to run no matter what time of year it is.


District Two serves 9,565 students and has a population base of more than 46,000. Over 44% of our students participate in the Free and Reduced Lunch program which is a notable sign of need.

This is the only resource of its kind in the district and Northern Spartanburg County.
