Mission: The mission of the Family Care Network is to enhance the well-being of children, youth and families in partnership with our community.FCNI began in 1987 as therapeutic foster family agency offering a family-based, community-centered treatment alternative to institutional care. Shortly thereafter, in collaboration with county agencies, we began adding services to prevent the removal of children from home. Presently, we provide 17 distinct programs in five services divisions. This includes: Therapeutic Foster Care Services; Family Support Services; Delinquency Prevention & School-Based Services; Transitional Housing Services; and our Community-Linked Services division. FCNI serves a population of severely emotionally disturbed, behaviorally challenging and/or high needs children, transitional age youth, & families, most at risk of requiring long term intervention and of consuming public resources.

Target demographics: Children, Youth and Families affected by trauma

Direct beneficiaries per year: 1500 children youth and families

Geographic areas served: San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara County

Excellent organization! Families and children are put first and the exclusive focus of Family Care Network. Jim Roberts, the CEO, is an outstanding leader and his heart is with the children he serves. Visit their facility, volunteer, help the families they serve and your heart will be enlarged, your soul moved and joy will fill your life. I trust this charity completely, having volunteered, served on the board in the past and continue to donate to help children in our area. This is the best way to help the most vulnerable and in need in our neighborhoods. Blessings

Alpha Phi Omega's Beta Gamma Pledge Class donated to this wonderful cause to help children grow up in a healthy environment with the same privileges we were able to grow up in! We have contacts that work for this organization and it's been reported that Family Care Network does great work for the children they help.

I really believe in what Family Care does. They are constantly trying to make a difference in the county and keep families together. They always put the families first. FCNI is also very creative in ways to promote what they do and raise funds to support the mission.

I've been involved with Family Care Network since 2000. I experienced the love and concern they have for children and families in our community. Most specifically for one of the girls in our church who was molested by a caregivers husband. Family Care Network staff was there to help this young girl heal from the tramadic experience. She is today a wonderful, careing young lady who is persueing a degree Sociology and wants to work with young children.

As a primary care pediatrician, I have been so amazed at the love, compassion and involvement of so many of the precious foster parents working with FCN. What is unique to me is the consistent care these children in need receive from FCN. The social workers and staff seem to seek the deeper meaning of the lives of these children and families. FCN is one of the great organizations that I have had the privilege of working with. May God bless them.

I have never met people more passionate about the work they do then the employees of Family Care Network. Every individual there is completely dedicated to their jobs and to changing lives. My experience with the organization truly showed me how a small group of motivated people can make a huge difference in peoples lives as well as the community. This organization is completely dedicated to bettering everyone around them, and they are such an inspiration to the people they touch.

My family received WRAP services for approximately two years due to our sons severe emotional needs. He had constant rages, self harming behaviors (cutting and burning himself) and the whole family was in a state of crisis on a daily basis. FCNI came in and helped us as a family to restore some normalcy in our home. Our son is still living with us and there are still issues that come up from time to time but we are able to communicate appropriately and he's a great young man.
