Community-Linked Services

How It Works

Services provide opportunities for individuals, organizations and businesses within our community to partner with FCNI to better serve children, youth and families

Why We Do It

  • To provide families and youth in need with safe, local affordable housing
  • To help those in care develop the lifeskills necessary to become self-sufficient
  • To help youth to develop a community-based support-system
  • To keep youth in their community and avoid homelessness or incarceration post care

The agency averages 600 volunteers annually who provide 17,500 hours of service--saving the agency around $500,000 per year.
