Family Support Council of Douglas County has been serving residents for over thirty years. As a 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization, we provide a wide variety of confidential and free support, resources, referrals, and educational services as well as emergency shelter for adult and child victims of domestic, sexual, and family, stalking dating violence.
The mission of the Family Support Council is to provide Education, Prevention, and Intervention services to support growth and development of healthy families.
Imagine a community without family violence. Imagine that every child grows up in a home filled with love and safety. Imagine that each elderly person lives out their life without fear. Imagine that parents can gain strength through education and peer support. And imagine that school children of all ages learn early on about respect, tolerance, and safe communication. If you can imagine that kind of community here in Douglas County, you can help us build it.
November 20th will be our next CPR/First Aid/AED course.
Please call us to schedule your attendance. $50/fee for certification

We are very excited to announce that we have received a grant from the Berger North Foundation. This year-long grant will allow us to serve the community in a way we have never done before. In addition to case management it will allow us to provide therapy services to families in need and also to provide a safe haven through our facilities. We are extremely grateful.October 30, 2014 at 1:31 pm

The FSC has a new program starting Nov. Each Tuesday, we will have a closed group session for Estranged Parents. What is an Estranged Parent? Those adults who have (usually) adult children who are no longer able to have healthy relationships with their parents. Think of people who may be a grandparent, but their children have moved away, lost contact, or provide very little contact.
If you or someone you know would be interested in this support group, please call us at 775-782-8692 to schedule an intake. All participants must be pre-interviewed by our licensed therapist.October 1, 2014 at 11:03 am
