The word for 2015 is CHANGE. CAMBIO.  We have many activities, celebrations and programs plan!  Some of our 2015 highlights include:

On 4/25/15, FICS held a 10th Birthday Party for the Center and a REUNION for all our Project Prevention, Community Advisors, teen coordinators and Prodigy leaders.  It was a special day and we had much singing, a little dancing and some eating!  Photos are on Facebook!  

FICS needs Madrinas and Padrinos, donate here.

On 5/2/2015, we celebrated and raised funds at Alayne's Fabulous 50 Birthday Fundraiser!!  Here is a link to all the photos shot by our sponsor Stephaniellen Photography

But that's because the community center is only part of what the organization does..." Read more (scroll down to Best Multicultural Mentors)...
