Who We Are
Working Towards a Better Tomorrow
The mission of Franklin County Family and Children First Council(FCFC) is to increase the access, capacity and effectiveness of services for the most vulnerable Franklin County youth and their families. Our guiding values explain how we work with children and families to fulfill this mission.
What We Do
Making A Difference
Building Better Lives Initiative
Helping The Community
A community-wide initiative to prevent child abuse and neglect in Franklin County. BBL encourages everyone providing services to children and families to understand the impact that complex developmental trauma has on a child’s brain, learning, and behavior – and to adopt strategies that support a child’s healthy development and improve their educational, vocational and health-related outcomes.
Multisystem Care Teams
Helping Families Through Collaborative Coordination
Multisystem care teams use a collaborative approach to help families with children who have multiple needs. We connect agencies, people and services to work with families to develop a coordinated plan of care. A team approach helps to organize services to better meet the specific and unique needs of families. We help families get the support they need to achieve the things that are important to them.
Help Me Grow and Early Intervention
One Step at a Time
Both Help Me Grow and Early Intervention are grounded in the philosophy that young children learn best from familiar people in familiar settings. Your providers work with you in your home or other places you and your family spend time to best use your existing supports and resources—and build upon them—to learn to enhance your child’s learning and development.
Partnership 4 Success
A Collective Impact
A collective impact backbone entity designed to organize, align and mobilize stakeholders and providers. Together, we create a holistic approach that benefits children, families, and ultimately, entire communities.
