What We Do
Family Resource & Training
Center is a public entity that has long been a part of the Eastern
Washington University College of Social Sciences. FRTC was established as a partnership to support
foster children and foster families as well
as to provide the child welfare workforce with qualified and well trained
workers. FRTC has evolved over the last 24 years to become a well-established contractor
throughout the state of Idaho.
Family Resource & Training Center’s central office, located in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and supporting office on the EWU Cheney campus, supports the many skilled employees and contractors who carry out our vision and mission throughout the state of Idaho. Because of the work we have done in providing quality programs that train, recruit and retain, develop and support our foster and birth families, FRTC has become an established provider to the Idaho Child Welfare communities. Currently, we have seven main programs through which we serve our resource and birth families, children in care, and the child welfare workforce.
