The San Juan Ridge Family Resource Center is a community-based organization whose mission is to connect, support and celebrate families in the San Juan Ridge area.

The Resource Center's food pantry, clothes closet, tech area and playgroup services are now re-instated. We also plan to offer Sports Camp in July. Other services, like drop-in play space, lending library and laundry station, continue to be suspended in order to reduce transmission of Covid. Check back here as updates on further re-opening will be posted as they become available.

For more information, contact us or stop by for a visit!

We regularly monitor email at

Help is available over the phone by calling 530.292.3174


We ask that you please do not leave donations of any kind at our site. Items left unattended quickly become trash that we then have to pay someone to clean up. We gratefully accept donations of cash, clothing and/or non-perishable food items during our open hours only - Mondays - Fridays 10 am-4 pm.


The Food Bank of Nevada County, the County of Nevada, Twin Ridges Elementary School District, and the San Juan Ridge Family Resource Center are working together to provide food to the San Juan Ridge Community. On Tuesday, July 13th, from 10am to noon, there will be a drive-thru food distribution on the Oak Tree Campus. Although the FRC’s food pantry has been feeding the community for years, this drive-thru distribution will make it possible for people to access far larger amounts without ever having to get out of their vehicles. We hope that as many people as possible will be able to take advantage of this event. For more info, please call 292.3174.
