OUR MISSION

The mission of the Far Southeast Family Strengthening Collaborative is to act as a catalyst to develop, nurture and sustain partnerships of residents, agencies, and institutions in the Southeast community and to create a healthy socioeconomic environment through which every child and family has an opportunity to achieve their maximum potential and to lead a productive life.

PHILOSOPHY &
GUIDING PRINCIPLES

The philosophy and guiding principles of the FSFSC are expressed through the following beliefs:

  • Healthy families are key to the success of our children and they must have the necessary tools to provide their children with safety and well-being.

  • Neighborhoods and communities have the responsibility to support family well-being so that children are nurtured and prepared for responsible adulthood.

  • Collaboratives are community-based, neighborhood-owned service delivery models that respect and cherish the integrity of families and tap into the resources of their neighborhoods for socially responsible action.
