The Children's Board Family Resource Centers are looking for community members to join our Family Community Advisory Councils (FCAC). The Councils meet once a month to discuss and bring to management's attention any services or programs they feel are needed or wanted in the community. There is also a FCAC Playgroup for your children to attend while you are in the FCAC meeting. If you are interested, please contact the Center nearest you. Your input drives services for your community.
