Penn Valley PARTNERS Family Resource Center

PARTNERS Family Resource Center is a place for families in the Penn Valley, Lake Wildwood and outlying areas to connect, learn and play. We are located at the back of the Ready Springs School campus and enjoy assisting families with parenting, child development, counseling, education, employment, public assistance enrollment and community resources. We collaborate with the Community Nutrition Educator, Nevada County Diaper Project, and many others. Support from area schools (Ready Springs, Williams Ranch, Clear Creek, and Vantage Point  Charter), parents, and community volunteers enhances our programs and resources for families.
