About Working Family Resource Center
Working Family Resource Center (WFRC) educates and supports employees to effectively manage the demands of work and family. For over 25 years, WFRC has provided quality educational seminars at the worksite, both in-person and online, in order to strengthen individuals, families and communities.
The result? Well-adjusted, healthy and productive employees…and strong, resilient and high-functioning families. Our programs are preventive in design and equip individuals with the tools and knowledge they need to effectively manage the demands of work, family and wellness.
Working Family Resource Center was established in 1985 as a program of the St. Paul Public Schools to provide early childhood education to working parents in downtown St. Paul. Over time, the center broadened its focus to include parenting classes of children from birth through young adulthood, and work-life education that addresses issues throughout the life cycle. In 2007, WFRC became an independent 501c3 organization, allowing WFRC to provide this high quality education throughout Minnesota. Today, WFRC partners with other organizations to provide comprehensive, cost-effective work-life and wellness programs in over 39 states.
