How we Help
Our family-centered and family-driven programs help to build and sustain healthy, productive and long-term family relationships by providing the support families need to be independent and self-sufficient. We believe that any family needing assistance should have convenient, timely access to the support and services they need to be successful.
We use a strength-based, family-centered approach so that families and children participate in planning and identifying the services most appropriate to achieve success. We promote healthy families and strong communities through Family Success initiatives, supports, resources and services.

FIS embodies the principles of Family Success in all programs and services, through treatment, policy, advocacy, training, research and evaluation.
Therapeutic Counseling - to help individuals, children, and families access necessary resources and to develop the skills and tools needed to live in a safe, stable, healthy environment to navigate through major life transitions.

Crisis Intervention - to respond to families 24/7 when help is needed to restore safety and to de-escalate crisis situations.
