The Nelson Resource Center's mission is to unite families of the community through various activities and events. We strive to educate and equip community members with the resources that they need to build stronger family ties and rebuild the local economy through fellowship and exchange of information and ideas. 


The vision of the organization is to be the driving force of community development in the Mid-South. 


We currently rent our facilities for family events, kid birthday parties, baby showers, family reunions, etc. Call today for information on prices and availability.
