Family Counseling Center, Inc. is set to begin a new program funded by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). The new program, operating out of the Agency’s Alexander County Office in Cairo, hosts services geared towards families who are at risk of having or currently have involvement with DCFS and includes counseling, advocacy, mentoring, case management, entitlement assistance, parental and family support, employment readiness training, and financial literacy training. Additionally, the assigned family advocate/counselor will serve as a case manager and gatekeeper to refer the family into any needed service including substance abuse treatment, mental health treatment, psychiatric evaluations or medication monitoring, homeless services or domestic violence services.
The Agency is excited to bring additional resources to the families of Alexander and Pulaski county. Please join us on March 14, 2017 at 1:00 PM for a Family Advocacy Center Open House event located at our Alexander County Office located at 1401 Washington Ave in Cairo, IL for an opportunity to tour our facility and meet the FAC staff!
