A note from our Executive Director
A look forward
At The Family Counseling Center, we work to celebrate our past while always looking forward. We pay attention to the needs of our clients, new opportunities for programming and services, and input from our partners like school districts, law enforcement, and other nonprofit organizations.
This year, we are excited to introduce programming that is focused on the social development and personal empowerment of girls (more below), expand our ability to welcome clients within 24-hours of their first call, and so much more. We are also celebrating! On March 16th we will be hosting a Fulton Montgomery Regional Chamber of Commerce After Hours event, welcoming new faces into our building and sharing our story.
Your support has a major impact on our organization, the lives of our clients, and the overall wellbeing of our community. Please consider making a donation to The Family Counseling Center. Online donations may be made here.
Our impacts and successes are directly connected to your donations, advocacy, and partnership. Thank you.
February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month
The Family Counseling Center of Fulton County and the Domestic Violence Program of Fulton County, are promoting the nationally recognized Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month over the course of February. Created by Congress in 2010, Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month is meant to promote and educate teens and young adults about what healthy relationships look like, the warning signs of abuse, and encourage dialogue between adults and the children in their lives about respect in personal relationships.
Campaign to raise funds for Girls Circle Programming
This year, we are looking to expand programming to youth through the One Circle Foundation, an organization that creates best-practices curriculum for behavioral health and social-emotional learning.
Our first goal is to raise the $3,000 needed to begin the Girls Circle program, a structured support group for girls between 9 and 18 years. This program helps to build resiliency and interpersonal skills by promoting an emotionally safe setting and structure where girls can developing caring relationships and use their authentic voices.
