* Holiday Assistance only serves Family & Children’s Services clients. If you are an FCS family in need, contact your case worker or therapist for more information.
FCS’s Holiday Assistance program was created to help our neediest families with this type of holiday stress.
Holiday Assistance has two components: Adopt-a-Family and Santa’s Shop.
Adopt-a-Family matches individual donors to FCS families in need. In 2016, 159 families were adopted (a 4% increase from 2015). The way it works is that each FCS case worker and therapist identifies just one client that is active in treatment and has the most need of resource assistance.
For the many families that aren’t adopted, the Santa Shop is a place where case workers can shop for their clients. One-hundred percent of donations go to the clients of FCS.
Keep us in mind for the 2017 holiday season.
