Family and Children First Councils Connect the Dots for Families
Your county's Family and Children First Council (FCFC) connects the dots to eliminate redundancy and bring resources together for planning, monitoring, and improving outcomes for families and children.
The Mission of County FCFCs is to increase the access, capacity and effectiveness of services for the most vulnerable of our county's youth and their families whose needs extend beyond any one youth-serving program.
In short, FCFCs are the only entity that "connects the dots" for children and families who are in need of multiple services. Click here to see how FCFCs Connect the Dots for Families (courtesy of Ohio Family and Children First Council Association).
Any family with a child or youth (age birth through 21 years) in need of a coordinated inter-disciplinary plan to address their unique needs is eligible for service coordination through FCFC. Referrals typically come through provider agencies, but any family has the right to self-refer for service coordination.
