from Children Services
FCCS will be out in the community this summer spreading awareness about child abuse prevention and offering parenting tips and resources to families. Being visible and active in the community is a priority for the agency, as our mission is to protect children by strengthening families. You'll see us at many local events. Look for our booths at the Sunny 95 Block Parties, the 2016 Empowerment Day Resource Fair, the African-American Male Wellness Walk and the City of Columbus Neighborhood Pride Bike Safety events. FCCS will also take part in speaking engagements in the community where we'll answer questions and spread the word about child welfare efforts.
We wrap up the summer with Mayor Ginther's Family Reunion and FCCS FamJam at Genoa Park on August 27 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This free family enrichment festival features, entertainment from youth acts, community resources, health screenings, public safety vehicles, visits from mascots and complimentary snacks (while supplies last). The event goes on rain or shine.
