Family Care Community Partnership (FCCP)
Creating a Safe, Nurturing Environment for Children
The Family Care Community Partnership program funded by the RI Department of Children, Youth and Families, connects Tri-County case workers to families who are coping with stressful situations and don’t know where to turn. Children and families may be referred to FCCP if children are experiencing emotional or behavioral difficulty, or have newly diagnosed mental health concerns or a developmental delay. Families may also benefit from the FCCP program if they have a child who is getting into trouble, or not listening at home or at school.
Case workers meet with families and create a plan to manage stress, help children succeed at home and at school, and help families to reach their goals. We start by talking to families about their hopes, their culture and family traditions so that workers gain an understanding of family values and strengths. Together, case workers and families build on those strengths to create a path towards reaching those goals. Case Workers also help families to create relationships with friends, family members and community supports to give children and parents every tool they need to be successful on their path.
The Tri-County FCCP program helps families to create a safe, nurturing environment for the child, while connecting the care givers to supportive services. Families with children from birth through 18 years old are eligible for services. Services vary from single needs such as parent skills training to intensive multi-service plans that address a multitude of needs. There is no cost for FCCP services.
