The Office of Family Resources understands the challenges of parenting, particularly while managing academic and/or professional responsibilities.
Our programs and services provide UMass families with support, education, and resources, not only to meet those challenges, but to succeed.
This website is intended to provide a snapshot of the family support programs and services available both on the UMass Amherst campus and in the greater Amherst area. Current information is mainly oriented to families with children five years of age or younger.
We hope you find this website useful. If you have any additions or corrections you would like to see incorporated please contact us.
