Mission: Family Care Foundation (FCF) is a public charity that operates programs and provides support and training for grassroots organizations in developing countries. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for all members of the international community, especially those who are poor, suffering, or disadvantaged. We participate in a wide range of community-based initiatives, providing direct services, disaster relief, as well as funding, training, technical assistance and coordination services. Grants are given to selected grassroots groups with well-organized local programs, where wisely placed funding can make a significant difference. To enhance the quality of life of a family, resources and opportunities must be available. While resources and opportunities are readily obtainable in developed nations, the same can be lacking in developing countries. By helping launch new programs around the globe, and by investing time, training, and funding in the grassroots groups that we identify, FCF is able to deploy these resources where they are most needed and have the biggest impact. As a result of this approach, our global relief and development network, the Mission Support and Humanitarian Services Program (MSHSP) now provides both emergency services and sustained development for communities, families and children in over 50 countries.
