New State Website Compiles Family, Children Resources

The new Alabama Family Central website will provide information to parents, families, teachers and caregivers about child care, education, family and health services in the state.

The site, which includes resources for at-home learning and teaching for every grade and subject, is a collaboration of state agencies and others. The Alabama Legislature supported Alabama Family Central with $500,000 from the Education Trust Fund budget.

“Alabama Family Central will ensure that all parents and children in our state have access to crucial information and resources from numerous state agencies and non-profit organizations,” Governor Kay Ivey said. “Great parents need strong partners, and I am proud of the strong collaboration between the state and private sector to offer a one-stop shop of assistance for Alabama families. I appreciate the Alabama Partnership for Children spearheading this effort.”

The initial funding request came from state Sen. Vivian Davis Figures of Mobile.
