What we aim to solve New!

Family Care Network's mission is to "enhance the well-being of children and families in partnership with our community." We strive to keep families together and enable and empower children and families who have dealt with significant trauma. From the surface, San Luis Obispo County looks like an affluent area all around, but many don't know how many children and families struggle to make ends meet and to keep their families safe and off the street. Thousands of children and families experience poverty, abuse, and neglect. Family Care Network works to help those in these vulnerable positions.

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

At the very heart and core of this mission is our goal to help the most vulnerable children and families within our community who have experienced significant trauma because of crime, poverty, abuse, neglect, or homelessness.

FCNI believes in providing "strength-based and needs driven services", which focus on empowering families to become self-sufficient rather than system dependent. Pursuing the best outcomes, accountability and transparency are also some of our guiding philosophies.

FCNI focuses on four major services areas: Mental Health, Family Support, Housing, and Education. Under our Mental Health services, we provide services to heal, empower and stabilize children and youth through individualized, culturally sensitive programs. Mental Health services provide the foundation of all of our services and prove to be the vital first step with families affected by trauma, allowing them to get the help they need to heal. Our Family Support services provide family-based homes for children needing out-of-home care and supportive services for families working to stay together. FCNI provides affordable housing combined with support services for homeless families or those at-risk of homelessness. Lastly, our Education programs meet the needs of our school-aged children in order to help them overcome obstacles to achieve their academic and career goals. We also provide financial assistance for tuition and related expenses for students attending college.

Our success rate is based on real,-life-changing successes, such as children and youth being successfully reunited with family; children and youth being diverted from higher levels of care or being institutionalized; foster youth successfully transitioning to independent living; children stabilizing their high-risk behaviors so they can be successful in school and at home; and families securing permanent housing and the life skills necessary to become fully self-sufficient.

Over the past 30+ years, FCNi has successfully served over 17,000 children and families. In our most recent fiscal year, we served over 2,000 children and families- 100% of whom were low income- with an overall success rate of 90%. We will continue to advocate for children and families in vulnerable situations and work with them to ensure they live healthy, full lives together.
