Parenting Network was founded and became a 5013 corporation in November of 1987. Funded by the Department of Developmental Services in 1988, it became the Tulare County Early Start Family Resource Center. The Early Start FRC has served parents of children with special needs by providing peer support services, counseling, and information and referral services. These families have many of the same issues as other families, including homelessness, domestic violence, mental health issues, and so forth. In 2007, Parenting Network received a planning grant from First 5 Tulare County to complete a community needs assessment and develop a plan for a new Visalia Family Resource Center. The Visalia FRC opened with limited services in November of 2008. In July 2009, the Visalia FRC became fully functional with funding provided by First 5 Tulare County. The FRC is currently funded by multiple sources and offers an array of services to families in Visalia.
