Year Five – 1991

FCNI’s fifth year, would bring about major change and a major lesson learned. In collaboration with a local community member and county partners, the agency would launch Care-Net Children’s Treatment Center, a group home designed to care for 12 children/youth. The lessons learned in this challenging and costly endeavor would succeed in again confirming FCNI’s true purpose–to care for children and youth through home-based, therapeutic means.

We hope that you will join us over the next 30 weeks as we share the journey of the Family Care Network, highlighting our partners and collaborators who made the last 30 years of care possible.
