The City of Fresno, Parks, After School, Recreation and Community Services Department (PARCS) has a great concern for the health and well-being of the residents of our great city. In the difficult economic times in which we live, national and local governments are looking for innovative ways to continue to grow and increase the quality of life for their citizens.
To help with this growth, PARCS established Fresno United Neighborhoods (FUN) in June of 2005. FUN is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, public benefit corporation whose mission is to improve the quality of life in Fresno through innovative and collaborative outreach initiatives in recreation, health, and learning for residents of all ages.
Each year FUN continues to advance its mission of supporting PARCS programs, services, and capital projects. FUN is working side by side with the Department’s leadership team to help make Fresno a destination, rather than a gateway, and to increase the livability of the region.
