“My children improved significantly. It was very helpful.”
“I felt like I had nowhere to turn until I received help from your services and it has changed my life.”

There are not enough hours in the day to achieve everything we want to do...we all know it.    However, in that one second you have available, please remember FCSSC. Your tax-deductible donation WILL make a difference and WILL change someone's(a family's) life in our community.
