Family Resource Center

Many of the families served by Kids Central and its partners struggle with meeting concrete needs such as food and clothing. The Kids Central Resource Center was created at the corporate facility to help families and children going through difficult times. Through community support and private donors, the Resource Center is filled with new and gently-used donated items, including housewares, furniture, linens, clothing, hygiene products, baby care items, and pantry food.

The Resource Center was created to assist clients served by Kids Central and partnering agencies. Families receive assistance after a request is made by a staff member from Kids Central, one of its contracted case management agencies, or other partners. All of the items are passed on to clients at no charge. The Resource Center is not open to the public; all requests must be made by staff.

Below are some examples of items that can help us support at-risk youth and families.

  • Food pantry needs (dry/canned foods, peanut butter, spaghetti sauce and pasta, kid-friendly cereals, Hamburger/Tuna Helper, canned tuna)
  •  Small appliances (microwaves, toaster ovens, blenders, coffee pots)
  • Toiletries (deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, feminine products, toilet paper)
  • Cleaning products (laundry/dish detergent, window/disinfecting cleaners, paper towels, sponges)
  • Diapers and baby wipes
  • Household furniture

We accept furniture of all sizes and can assist with pick-up of donated items. Please email kim.avera@kidscentralinc.org or call (352) 387-3519 for more information.

Staffed almost entirely by volunteers and stocked with carefully selected donated items, the Kids Central Resource Center is a community effort. Kids Central seeks donations, especially non-perishable food items, kitchen supplies, beds, dressers, bedding, hygiene products, and diapers. Donations can be made at the corporate office during business hours. Donations are tax deductible, and the items are passed on to clients at no charge. By donating to the Kids Central Resource Central, you’re a part of the effort in building better lives!
