Having outgrown their previous location at 213 South Jefferson Street, the new, larger location will allow them to expand their services. “Over the next year, FRC is projected to double in staff size,” FRC’s Executive Director Kenosha Davenport said. “We are excited to be able to add more staff and offer more services to our community.”
