When I first walked into Challenge Family Resource Center (CFRC) I had a very warm feeling because everybody was smiling and appeared to be quite happy to be there. I found the workers dedicated to helping people in just about any way they could. The thrift store is loaded with a lot of nice things and I am sure that your first visit there will make you want to return.
