In 1991, community members established La Comunidad Unida (United Community) to focus on integrating programs and services for families and individuals seeking local resources. Over the years 46 community members, stakeholders, and partners came together to talk about developing a welcoming center where families would be able to access services and programs that other partners or agencies were providing. With the partnership of SH Cowell Foundation and the Truckee Tahoe Community Foundation, partner agencies and community members collaborated and aided in the development of the initial services and programs for the future Family Resource Center.In 2001, thanks to the diligence and dedication of all those involved, the NTFRC opened its doors to the community under the name Kings Beach Family Resource Center. It was and continues to be incorporated in both the state of Nevada and California.In 2007 the name was changed to NTFRC to clarify that we encompass the Greater North Tahoe and West Shore community. Our agency assists between 1,200 and 1,500 community members annually through our varied programs and services. We will continue our work of strengthening community one family at a time
