Family-Centered Community Support Services

The Family-Centered Community Support Services (FCCSS) program is a South Carolina state-wide service that provides prevention services to families referred by the South Carolina Department of Social Services (SCDSS) who are facing conditions affecting their family life and who without services could require intervention by the Department of Social Services. FCCSS focuses on addressing conditions that affect stability and well-being, such as poverty, youth parental age, relational issues, parental or child disabilities, increasing the risk of neglect and abuse. FCCSS targets families exhibiting many of these conditions with proactive and prevention services while building protective capacities with sustainable resources. These services are intended to strengthen families and reduce the likelihood of abuse or neglect. Interventions are not incident driven or investigative in nature, but focus on engagement and outreach.

Family Resource Specialists are the main service providers with consultation provided by experienced supervisors and clinical staff. Services are based on each family’s needs and include:

  • Homemaker Services
  • Career Exploration and Assessment
  • Non-Medical Transportation Services
  • Tutoring Services
  • Parenting Services
