Mission and Vision

KBFRC aspires to be part of an inclusive and dynamic community where people feel comfortable in seeking and providing help and support to one another and whose members uphold equality for all groups, families and individuals so that opportunities for employment, security, personal growth and good health are open to all.

“Shaping the community, together”.

The Killaloe/Ballina Community & Family Resource Centre aims to achieve its objectives by providing a well-resourced, secure Centre, staffed by a friendly and effective team who will pro-actively support individuals, families and our wider community in an inclusive and professional manner.

KBFRC aspires to be part of an inclusive and dynamic community where people feel comfortable in seeking and providing help and support to one another and whose members uphold equality for all groups, families and individuals so that opportunities for employment, security, personal growth and good health are open to all. The original Centre's location was never going to fully meet all of our requirements because of the lack of facilities on offer. As we grew in size and scope over the first few months, it became clear that we would need to move to a new location in the near future. In October 2009, we moved to the current premises. The more centralized town location offered a welcoming and inviting front for community members and also afforded us the ability to create new groups and start up new classes. We formed new partnerships with various organisations and also upgraded our entire I.T infrastructure. We reached out to more members of the community and found that the need for information and support was in more demand than we had even thought. As we continue to grow, we continue to support and offer guidance to service users looking for different things. We have adapted to the communities needs and strive to offer something for everyone.

Funding for our new purposed move is well under way and we have already reached some of our initial targets and continue to raise awareness. It can be difficult to know what road to take or what path to follow when thinking of continuing your education which is why we offer talks and classes. Here at the Killaloe/Ballina Community & Family Resource Centre our aims are simple: we want to provide the community with a well-resourced, secure Centre, staffed by a friendly and effective team who will pro-actively support individuals, families service members within the community in an inclusive and professional manner.
