Friends of Children and Families
Friends of Children and Families, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides support for families and children in crisis. Our first area of service is preventative in nature. We come alongside families in need to strengthen and support them so that less children are entering the foster care system.
We provide residential group care for teenagers in foster care. Our program Fostering Futures ensures that the youth in our care are learning the important life skills they need to be successful and independent adults.
FCF’s philosophy is based on the belief that if children are provided with love, a sense of security, structure and positive opportunities for growing in a family and community atmosphere, then healthy development will occur. Friends strive to provide that kind of environment by providing the necessary services, support, and care for children in need.
The primary goals of FCF are to provide an environment that is conducive to the growth and safety of our children, enhance the lives of children who have been diagnosed with emotional and behavioral disturbances, and offer the needed services and programs which develop the cognitive and social skills of the children.
