Who We Are
Established in 1993, Franklin County Family and Children First Council (FCFCFC) has long-served as the hub for all child and family serving systems in the county. The Council is made up of a diverse group of partner agencies who inform, lead, and continually adapt the organization based on the needs of families within the county. Family and Children First Councils perform four core functions: engaging and empowering families, building community capacity, shared accountability, and coordinating systems and services.
The FCFCFC’s team of staff is one of passionate, multi-disciplined professionals dedicated to serving families through voice and choice and strength-based values. Through a commitment to developing trauma competent, relationship-based services, FCFCFC aims to equip children, youth, families and community partners with new skills and foster a sense of hope and resiliency.
Our Culture and Values
We offer a framework where equity is braided into the core fabric of all of this agency’s work. At Franklin County Family and Children First Council (FCFCFC) this commitment manifests through intentional recruitment, staff development, and advocacy for the systems we collaborate with as well as the families and children we serve. Essential components of equity include diversity and inclusion which serve as tools aimed toward the ultimate goal of an authentically just society.
The mission of Franklin County Family and Children First Council is to increase the access, capacity and effectiveness of services for the most vulnerable Franklin County youth and their families. Our guiding values, as expressed within our four core pillars, explain how we work with children and families to fulfill this mission.
