Why are FCSS Programs Considered "Preventative?"

The goal of FCSS programming is to develop a sense of integrity, self-worth, and independence among individual members of the community and within the City as a whole. The intention is that this will help to prevent a number of common personal and societal problems. FCSS programs focus on:

  • encouraging the adoption of healthy lifestyles
  • strengthening and stabilizing family and community life
  • improving people's ability to identify and act on their own needs
  • helping to avoid family or community social breakdown
  • encouraging cooperation and coordination among community groups and service agencies
