How Can You Help Me?

Our advocates are here to support you. We want you to know that when you seek support at FCC, you are in the driver’s seat. We will work with you to explore all of your options, but ultimately decisions are yours and we will support you however we can through all of your decisions. Below are some services we provide.

  • Safety planning
  • Emotional support
  • Support at court hearings
  • 24 hour phone/text support
  • Help with medical appointments
  • Exploring all options
  • Support for children
  • Resources and referrals
