What is FCC?
A respectful process for families to come together with their support persons, community service providers and CAS worker. The objective is to reach mutual agreement on what needs to happen or what steps need to be taken to keep children safe and families strong.
The process involves an open discussion of family strengths and child protection concerns, while respecting cultural and religious differences. The goal is to develop solutions that meet the needs of the child and family.
It is a voluntary process that is of benefit to the family because it honors their own decision making abilities.
