The CREC Trude Mero Family Resource Center creates a welcoming community and a one-stop service center for families and students who attend CREC's regional magnet schools or suburban schools through the Hartford Region Open Choice Program. By offering a meeting space for parents and educators and information sessions and forums on school and child development issues at a location that is close to families' homes, the center provides opportunities for families to participate more fully in their child's education.

The CREC Trude Mero Family Resource Center opened its doors in September 2013 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in honor of the center's namesake, the late Trude Mero. Gertrude "Trude" Johnson-Mero was a local hero and legend in Hartford. Trude is quoted as saying, "A child should be able to dream — to dream of an education, which brings a job and a home and then provided the tools to realize that dream."
