A message of thanks from FSC Executive Director Holly Rice

Mother Teresa once said “I want you to be concerned about your next door neighbor. Do you know your next door neighbor?” FSC has the good fortune to be neighbors with Shaw Plant 6 whose management team and maintenance crew have taken Mother Teresa’s message to heart. There have been countless times when Shaw Plant 6 has responded to maintenance issues that have arisen at our building, allowing us to focus funding and energy on our efforts to prevent child abuse and neglect. Many thanks to these individuals who are concerned about their neighbors and their community!thanks01

Introducing News and Events!

We are pleased to announce the launch of our brand new website! This product is the result of a lot of work done by a team of web design students from Reinhardt University over the past 3 or 4 months. Visitors to our previous site were either interested in our programs or were families looking for information about the kind of help the Family Support Council provides. Our goal with this new site is to provide our visitors with an easier way to learn about what the Family Support Council does, why we do what we do, and how to get involved. We will be adding new research on a regular basis, and feature up-to-date news events several times throughout the year that will present information on current events related to the community. Volunteer opportunities will be posted as they become available. We now have a blog that will highlight life in the nonprofit sector, and our traditional forum called Ask Mr. Bartley.

Take a look at the new blog here !

We hope you find the new website has a fresh look, is easy to use and is informative. Please send us your feedback:

Thank You!
