Quote of the day:

"FICS has been part of my life for about a decade.   First I was a parent of a 'Project prevention' student, than I joined the staff for the last four years.  I 've seen lives changed for the best , due to the work and the love of the staff.  FICS partners with many other organisations to help the community. FICS is a real asset for the community. "

Town n Country and South County Community Advisors Programs
Make a Difference in Your Community!

FICS believes that youth from 5th grade on, service provider partners, parents, allies, business leaders and faith based groups should be involved in community conversations about what is "right" and "not right" in our communities.  Our model of building on strengths to address the risks works.  It works best when we all work together. 

FICS' Community Advisors have chosen the theme: Know Your Rights and Get Involved.    Get in touch any time:
