Resource Center

Kids Central’s corporate facility is home to a Resource Center created to assist clients served by Kids Central or partnering agencies. Families receive assistance after a request is made by a staff member from Kids Central or one of its contracted case management agencies. The center is filled with new and gently-used donated items, including housewares, furniture, linens, clothing and food pantry. 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 Kids Central 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.
