"Building A Better World Through Family & Education"
The Nelson Community Resource Center is a local community and educational charity organization working to serve the growing needs of the Lauderdale County community. Our mission is to help strengthen the community by supporting events that bring families & the community together and to develop programs that help to improve literacy, education, and career training.
New! K-12 Digital Classroom
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic & school closings across the country, parents have been looking for resources to keep their child from falling behind. With our digital work packets, parents can now access grade level worksheets, Math/ELA Practice, TCAP/TN Ready Item Samplers, reading logs, & more.
