The Community Resource Center strives to build a healthier and stronger community through positive relationships, education, programs, and support services.
The CRC envisions an inclusive, thriving and connected community, one in which all members experience enriched and empowered lives.
FAMILY SUPPORT PROGRAM
We help children, families and communities thrive and connect.
The Family Support Program at the CRC is a warm and inviting place where families and individuals are welcomed and encouraged to participate in programs designed to support and enhance a nurturing and vibrant community.
Our staff and volunteers provide individual support, skill building, and resource information to people and families in our community at no cost.
Achieve your family goals. Attend play groups, parenting classes, and learn about what resources are available to you.
We believe in creating a safe place for teens to come and connect with their friends and peers while engaging in various classes and fun events. Many of our programs are free and offered to students in grades 6-12.
Examples of past activities include:
Themed Game Nights
Art classes, and more!

The Community Resource Center strives not only to be a community gathering place but also a place that helps connect people to resources within the community.
EMPOWERMENT PROGRAMS AND RESOURCES
We can provide financial help for individuals and families in need of assistance to prevent discontinuation of necessary services, eviction, and other basic needs. These funds are limited and an appointment must be scheduled with our Resource Coordinator. Some documentation will be required.
The Wardrobe is a collaboration between the Community Resource Center of Stanwood Camano and the Stanwood Camano Food Bank to provide teens and young adults in emergent need with new or very gently used clothing, hygiene items, and other much-needed supplies. We primarily serve teens and young adults who are within the Stanwood-Camano School District boundaries and/or attend a school in our area. We have a variety of sizes for all different body types which allows for flexibility with who can benefit from The Wardrobe’s items. The items found at The Wardrobe can be broken down into three categories: Emergency Everyday Items, Business Attire, and Seasonal Items.
Through a referral system, we work with various local organizations and people to identify those who need our services. Then by appointment, people can come to the Community Resource Center and shop. There is also an order pick-up option if needed. While our business attire and some seasonal items are loaned out to the individual for a specific amount of time, our emergent everyday items are theirs to keep!
DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION COMMITMENT STATEMENT
The Community Resource Center believes that structural, cultural, and relational inequities must be courageously recognized and dismantled. We recognize our unique privilege to help create systemic change to ensure our community is one that is inclusive, equitable, and welcoming to all. To that end the Community Resource Center is dedicated to evaluating all aspects of our organization, confronting our own biases, and doing so continually and with transparency. We live this commitment each day by exercising our role as a champion of equity in the Stanwood-Camano community.
We acknowledge the land we’re on today is the ancestral homeland of Coast Salish people and has been since time immemorial. We respect their sovereignty, their right to self-determination, and we honor their sacred spiritual connection with the land and water.
