Sunrise Family Resource Center, Inc. is a non-profit parent/child center whose mission is "Strengthening Families."  We do this by providing educational and support services to families living in Bennington County and surrounding areas. Over the years Sunrise has expanded, adding educational and support groups, family out-reach programs, community childcare support services, and a range of services to young parents.  Opportunities, an on-site program modeled on Addison County’s successful Learning Together program, provides an alternative education and mentoring experience for teen parents wishing to complete their high school diploma.
