Who We Are
We are people like you who only want the best for our children. We are parents and concerned citizens of all kinds: foster parents, kinship parents, birth parents and grandparents, child welfare professionals, health care providers, attorneys, the juvenile justice community and anyone else that shares our vision.
The Family Support Center of Barry County is a premiere non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening parents and families with the goal of raising strong, safe and healthy children. We aim to prevent child abuse, ensure safety, eliminate all forms of neglect, and provide education and guidance for abused/neglected children and at-risk parents. By reaching deep into the community and collaborating with other agencies that share our mission we’re able to provide a variety of Family-focused services. Without the support of our surrounding communities, board members, local companies and organizations none of this would be possible. For the past three decades, we’ve helped countless children and families find their way to a better, brighter future. With your help, we will continue to provide support for each family through comprehensive education, awareness, and advocacy.
