Director message.

The work of the Family Connection Center is not to supplant individual responsibility, but to provide supportive programs designed to strengthen families and promote self-sufficiency among the most vulnerable families in our community.
In short, our goal is to help families eradicate abuse and poverty from their own lives and replace them with strong relationships and self-reliance.
Whatever success our clients have is not our own. It is theirs. And it is yours. Our results are in large part due to your support, for which we are very grateful.
Sincerely,
Jason Wilde
Executive Director
