Welcome Families!

About Office of Family Resources

We understand that being both a parent and a student presents its own unique set of challenges, and we're here to support you. We can help you navigate UMass, get connected to resources, apply for a childcare grant, meet other students with families, find kid-friendly educational and cultural activities to do in the community, and more.

Our programs and services are also open to UMass staff and faculty with young children, as well as community members who are part of our Amherst Family Center.

To learn more, call, email, or stop by to see us!  We look forward to meeting you!
