Lopez Island Family Resource Center


The Lopez Island Family Resource Center offers programs and services to support, enrich, educate, and most importantly empower the Lopez community. We recognize the realities of island life; our programs celebrate the advantages and address the challenges of our small, isolated community.

When children, families, and individuals face difficult times, we act as a safety net, helping them meet basic needs through:

ACCESS TO HOUSEHOLD SUPPORTS –The LIFRC assures household stability by offering assistance with housing, applications or referrals to support services for food, energy assistance, transportation, clothing, healthcare, mental health counseling, and many more programs.

SOCIAL EMOTIONAL SUPPORT –The LIFRC provides social activities and programs, as well as play-therapy and counseling resources.

LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES -The LIFRC enriches learning experiences for individuals of all ages and support for small businesses.

ADVOCATING FOR A JUST COMMUNITY –The LIFRC works with other organizations and community members to host community conversations about important issues, facilitate meetings to address community needs and create systems changes, and implement the Compassionate Schools/Community Philosophy.

Above all, our goal is to facilitate the building of bridges within our unique community, allowing people to connect as teachers, mentors, helpers, and friends.  If you would like to learn more about the Resource Center, please visit: LIFRC Presentation 2016.

Construction Progress

Have you seen the construction activity in Lopez Village?  The building will be home to the Lopez Island Family Resource Center (LIFRC) and Lopez Fit.
A very generous donor purchased the land and is paying for the construction of the new building.
Once complete, the two organizations will move in to the larger and more accessible space (including a new and improved Lopez Fresh area) to continue their important work. Donations made to LIFRC and Lopez Fit are not being used for construction.  They are crucial to continue the exceptional programs that each organization offers, so ongoing support is greatly appreciated.
