WHAT IS A FAMILY RESOURCE CENTER?
WHO WE ARE
Monarch Family Resource Center is a satellite location of the Parkland Pregnancy Resource Center located in Ironton Missouri. Our mission is to provide our clients with support, care, education, and practical items that are needed to raise their families well. All of our services are completely free!
Monarch Family Resource Center is an Earn while you Learn program. This means that clients are required to participate in the classes offered through Monarch’s program. Through participation, points are rewarded which allows the client to go “shopping” in the boutique.
Through our points program, the client is able to “buy” the items we have in stock which may include: baby/maternity clothes, diapers, wipes, toys, car seats, bassinet, swings, hygiene items, and much more. To qualify for our program, the client has to be pregnant or caring for a child anywhere between the ages of infancy to 3 years old.
Another aspect of Monarch is our pregnancy-related consultations. These include a health intake, pregnancy test, STD test (if applicable), and a limited 1st-trimester ultrasound (if qualified). During these visits, we are able to educate, assess the client’s situation, and help make referrals as needed. At Monarch, we focus on the whole person, including the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of the client which allows us to better care for her.
