Since 1994, the purpose of Families and Communities Together (FaCT) has been to strengthen agencies and communities dedicated to promoting stronger family networks that in turn reduce the risk of child abuse and neglect. FaCT provides the following services to help family resource centers (FRC) deliver high-quality, best practice services to the individual child, parent, and family:
• Technical assistance on marketing, data collection, evaluation, and fundraising
• Trainings in organizational and programmatic topics, such as collaboration, financial management, safety, and best practices
• Advocacy and community engagement that raises awareness of FRC services through marketing materials, stakeholder outreach, and training for FRC parent/community volunteers
With funding from the County of Orange Social Services Agency, The Olin Group has partnered with Charitable Ventures of Orange County and the Orange County Alliance for Children and Families to provide network administrative services to the Families and Communities Together (FaCT) program. Together, the partnership is known as the FaCT Coalition.
