Thank you for visiting TOP.  We are so glad you are here!  Whether you are seeking services or information, currently supporting TOP or are looking for ways to support our mission, I hope you find all of the information on this site to be helpful. 


TOP is Tuscaloosa's One Place, A Family Resource Center.  We believe that healthy families build healthy communities.  Our mission has always been to empower people to achieve their full potential, and we proudly 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.


Our team serves the community with an abundance of enthusiasm and has done an incredible job of expanding our outreach while strengthening our programs and services.  Because of their hard work, we reach thousands of individuals and families every year.  I am honored to serve as the Executive Director of TOP with this team of staff, board members, volunteers and community partners. 


I look forward to seeing our progress in the coming years!
