UMass Amherst

Our Mission

The Office of Family Resources (OFR) is committed to increasing UMass families' access to and awareness of educational and enrichment resources and opportunities.

The family, where children develop their deepest values and a sense of themselves, is the essential unit of human society. Families perform a vital and demanding role by helping children develop into responsible adults.

The OFR is committed to increasing a sense of community among the diverse families that comprise our campus.
