Family and Children First Councils Connect the Dots for Families 

Your county's Family and Children First Council (FCFC) connects the dots to eliminate redundancy and bring resources together for planning, monitoring, and improving outcomes for families and children.

The Mission of County FCFCs 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 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.

Crisis Text Line - Text HOME to 741741
The Crisis Text Line provides free, 24/7 mental health support via text message. Crisis Counselors bring texters “from a hot moment to a cool calm” using techniques in empathetic listening. Once they’ve built rapport and trust, explored the issues, and established the texter’s goal, they collaboratively problem-solve to help the texter come up with a plan to stay safe. Texting in will not appear on your bill if you have AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon as your cell phone carrier.
