The RTFC provides an array of services for Pre-Kindergarten students though adult residents.  Currently, the Center operates many program initiatives with the support of numerous partners and volunteers that include after school enrichment, a weekly read-aloud series, community gardening for both children and adults, a parent support group, adult life skills classes, and assistance with resume writing and job applications.
