Help Us Help

The following best describes what we do, and why we do it.

"There was a town near a large river with a swift current. One day, the townspeople saw children floating down the river, struggling against the current and crying for help. The people quickly gathered and frantically began plucking the children from the river. For hours they continued and still the children came. A woman began to walk away. The townspeople asked, ‘Why are you not helping? These children are drowning!' The woman replied, ‘I am going upstream and stop them from throwing the children in the river."

We do both. While we work hard to pull children from the river, we do not ignore the families whose children are dangerously close to the river's edge.

Please help us reach as many families as possible. By supporting FPC, you will be a part of supporting and strengthening parents and their children.

Our agency exists because of the generosity of those who care about families.
