St. Croix Family Resource Center

Focus Area: Youth Development

Grant Amount: $10,000

Based in Stillwater, serves St. Croix River Valley. SCFRC has been providing social services for low-income families since 1997. It offers supportive housing connections, family and career connections, and youth programming.

Grant supports expansion of SCFRC’s youth music and tutoring program to expand the afterschool program to a broader group of low-income youth in the community whose families are not currently involved in the center’s programming. The program offers tutoring and homework help and music lessons for guitar, piano, and voice. SCFRC’s program mentors have been able to continue working with their mentees via phone during the Covid-19 crisis.
