Family Support

Family Support

At the center of every community is the family unit. Whether it's assisting parents with finding employment, enrolling them in education/training opportunities, or intervening immediately to help families find shelter or stay housed, we believe in not only meeting people where they are in life, but helping them find a better way forward. Catholic Community Services offers supportive, person-centered programming for families experiencing poverty and homelessness. We provide services and connections throughout Lane County to families who have minor children or are expecting a first child within two months. We offer two programs, FSC and OASIS, to assist families dependent on qualifying factors.

Family Support and Connections (FSC) Program

Our FSC Program offers families throughout Lane County the support of a caring case manager who can help find necessary resources to reduce family stress and increase opportunities for family success. If you are seeking connections to community resources for education, employment support, housing resources, support to strengthen your family or to reduce parental stress, complete the FSC Interest Form below and allow 72 hours for a case manager to reach out to you.
