Updated FSC Intake Schedule
In an effort to better serve our clients, FSC’s intake will cut off at 2:00 PM daily effective Dec. 1, 2016.
If you come in past 2:00, you can still speak with a staff member and will be given your intake paperwork to take home and complete to bring back. FSC often experiences long wait times as we do not use a one-size-fits-all approach and strive to give each client specialized attention. As you are planning your visit to FSC, please note that the shortest wait times are typically first thing in the morning at 8:00 AM. We appreciate your understanding as we make this change to better serve you.

“It’s hard to sum up the Family Safety Center in a sentence or two since they changed my life. I came in just for a protection order, however I left with the hope, healing and courage I needed to move on and never look back. The storm is over now; I will be forever grateful for the FSC!!”
