The Ron Wood Family Resource Center, founded in April 1995, was originally called the “Ron Wood Project.” Ron Wood was a respected and compassionate juvenile justice professional who – through his dedicated years of service – touched the lives of many troubled youth and their families.
When Ron was tragically and prematurely struck with a terminal disease, he fought this illness with faith, determination and courage – while continuing his devotion to his family, friends and career. He will long be remembered and appreciated both on a professional and personal level.
Ron’s spirit will continue to live on through the many lives he touched. It was Ron’s dream to establish a truancy Center; however, as time evolved, it became clear truancy is usually a symptom of a much bigger problem. One year later, the “project” evolved into a family resource Center.
The Ron Wood Family Resource Center is regulated and partially funded by NRS 430A. In collaboration with local businesses, community-based organizations and government agencies, we’re able to provide a range of services to assist families in the Carson City community and beyond.
