Welcome to the Shelby County Family and Children First Council website. The goal of this website is to provide information on FCFC and what it offers within the community, as well as a resource for both families and community members to connect to services with in the community and to access information about community services in Shelby County. Our website is new and so we are always looking for feedback that can help make our website more helpful to others so feel free to e-mail me any suggestions.
The Shelby County Family and Children First Council is a countywide collaborative effort of our social services agencies, school systems, business, city, and county representatives. The Council was organized in January of 1993 in response to Governor Voinovich’s Family & Children First Initiative. The goal of the Council is to improve the quality of life for children and families of Shelby County in the areas of health, child development, and education. This will be accomplished by working together to redesign existing programs so that they lead to better results and reinforce each other, fill service gaps, and develop new approaches where needed.
