Our Family Care Community Partnership program works with a range of community partners to help prevent child abuse, child neglect, and juvenile delinquency in the cities of Pawtucket, Central Falls, and East Providence. The program accepts referrals from schools, physicians, state and community agencies, as well as self-referrals.
We all know it takes a village to raise a child, but the reality is not everyone has a village to turn to right away. With a 95% success rate of keeping families together, FCCP uses a “wraparound” approach that helps families build and expand their natural support network of friends, family and neighbors as well as community supports such as religious communities, school, and community agencies.
Families identify the areas they believe need the most help. Any family with a child(ren) between 0 – 18 years old who are experiencing parenting challenges, serious life stressors, emotional, behavioral and/or a mental health crisis may be eligible.
