TOP Mission Statement
Tuscaloosa’s One Place, A Family Resource Center empowers people to achieve their full potential. We provide resources to promote self-sufficiency, strengthen families, and prevent child abuse and neglect thus improving the quality of life for all members of our community.
In late 2005 the agency became Tuscaloosa’s One Place, a Family Resource Center; thereby depicting the “one place” families can come to receive services. Through a dedicated effort between TOP staff and its community partners, the Family Resource Center has made a difference in the lives of local families. To expand the services being provided to citizens throughout the County, in 2011 TOP opened a satellite office in downtown Tuscaloosa as well as expanded into Greene and Sumter County. We are continuing to examine the needs of the community and work to find innovative ways to make a difference.
