We work better, together
Guernsey County Family and Children First Council (FCFC) helps to streamline and coordinated services for children and families by eliminating redundancy and bringing resources together for planning, monitoring, and improving outcomes.
Our mission 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.
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.
