What's New


Parents in Henry County now have another resource for dealing with life’s challenges. Sandwiched between the education center for Henry County Schools and the Henry County Adult Education Center on Lee Street in Stockbridge, the new Family Resource Center has a variety of materials, programs, classes and workshops designed to meet the needs of parents facing familiar life issues.

"All families need various levels of support at some time. Our goal is to help families focus on their strengths, build confidence, and improve family communication," says Anna Arnold, the center’s coordinator.

Center staff will help parents become more involved with their children’s learning by providing assistance with math and reading activities that reflect the family’s culture and heritage.

Classes and workshops will be available on topics such as coping with stress, improving communication, dealing with peer pressure, preventing bullying and helping children enjoy doing homework. Parents can also develop valuable support networks with other families facing similar challenges.

At the Family Resource Center, you can also find assistance in the following areas:

• parent education
• communication skills
• time management
• tutoring
• computer training
• volunteer opportunities
• family crisis management
• Parents as Partners in Education
• community outreach

A comfortable homelike setting will set parents at ease in the community room for workshops and classes. A conference room is available for small group meetings and an office is available for private conferences. A children’s center is furnished with tables and chairs, books, puzzles, games and activities.

The Family Resource Center is open Tuesdays from 1- 5:00 p.m. and Wednesdays from     8 a.m. - 5 p.m. You may call for night appointments. Classes and workshops will be advertised in local papers and through your child’s school, but a parent can come to the center anytime it is open for assistance.

Parents can even make use of the resource center during the summer months. The summer workshop schedule will be available on request or on-line at
