Community and family involvement is one of the main focuses of ARC Family Resource Centre and we encourage community involvement in all aspects of the Centre from management to volunteers. We dedicate ourselves to responding to the ever-changing needs of the families in our extended community through providing needs led responses. Together we can support families and build stronger communities.
