Who is FCSA and Who do We Serve:
Family Centered Services of Alaska (FCSA) is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) corporation founded in 1989 and managed by a nine member Board of Directors. The mission of the organization is "To serve Alaska by Providing Family and Child Centered Services With Unconditional Care" The original founders of the organization were community members with a diverse range of professional backgrounds committed to helping children with a wide spectrum of behavioral and mental health issues. Since its inception, FCSA has grown significantly in size and in importance in the delivery of behavioral health services within Alaska. In 1989 it had approximately 18 staff and an annual operating budget of $300,000. Today FCSA has a staff of approximately 118 with an operating budget of $10.0 million. FCSA has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities since January 2004.
FCSA primarily serves children and young adults five (5) to age 17, but as needed up to age 20 for young adults requiring extended transitional assistance to adulthood. A significant percent of the children we serve are in need of stable living situations, a need we provide for through a network of small residential facilities, family group homes and foster homes.
The behavioral and mental health services provided by FCSA are delivered in the interior of Alaska in the communities of Fairbanks and Delta Junction. However, because most communities in Alaska have limited or no services for children and FCSA operates several specialist programs unique in Alaska children from all areas of Alaska routinely access services.
With regard to the racial makeup of our consumers for calendar year 2012, 51% are Caucasian, 35% Alaska Native or American Indian children, 10% African American, 2% Hispanic, and 1% Asian and 1% Samoan.
Today FCSA provides quality services out of 16 locations in the Fairbanks area and the community of Delta Junction, Wasilla, and Dillingham. We stress personalized services and when possible utilize a wrap-around model that takes into consideration each child's strengths, family history, culture, needs and service modality preferences. The future holds many challenges for FCSA but our staff look forward to meeting and overcoming those challenges with confidence and through commitment to those we were founded to serve. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
