Family Support Services

How It Works

Family Support Services empower families, and stabilize children and youth through individualized, culturally-sensitive treatment services.

Why We Do It

  • Maintain children and youth in a permanent and stable family setting
  • Provide parents/caregivers the skills needed to be an effective parent
  • Assist families in developing a community-based support system
  • Provide treatment to children and youth in a family setting to achieve permanency

93% of children in foster care in California have been victims of abuse and/or neglect.
Since providing programs through our Family Support Services, FCNI has helped over 10,000 children, youth and families impacted by trauma to heal, and become stronger and more self-sufficient.


Familia de Novo
Wraparound services designed to keep children/youth at home as an alternative to institutional care. Services emphasize the child’s/youth’s and family’s strengths and needs, providing in-home support, individual and family counseling, and Family Partners support in partnership with the Department of Social Services, Probation and Mental Health Services.
Resource Family Services
FCNI began as a foster care agency, and has provided high-quality, family-based care for children and youth impacted by trauma and needing out of home care since our inception.
Adoptions & Permanency
FCNI became a State Licensed Adoption agency in 2014. Since this time, the agency has developed a strong adoption program focused on placing children with highly-trained families, adding an additional layer to FCNI’s ongoing commitment to moving our children and youth towards permanency within their own local community.
