Albany -- South Georgia families dealing with disabilities now have a one-stop shop for important resources.

On Monday, Easter Seals unveiled the Carlton and Wade Childress Family Resource Center. It's a place where families can come for everything from information on disability related services to training on different issues affecting them.

The center will be a benefit to Albany and other parts of the state.

"This is a family resource center kind of in today's time. Families will be able to come in here and do computer searches, web searches on disability issues, best practice issues," said Executive Director Beth English.

The center is named after Easter Seals founder Mildred Huie's daughter and grandson.

Huie's daughter Mildred Wilcox and the Sertoma Club helped with initial funding of the center.
