Family Support Center is offering
in-person services once again!
Family Support Center remains dedicated to serving survivors in our community now that the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic is lessening. Our staff is fully vaccinated and are offering in-person services once again. Those who come to our office need to wear a mask (provided), to ensure safety for all. Along with in-person services, we are continuing to offer virtual services to everyone, and will continue to do so after the pandemic. For some, this is a more convenient option. As always, we continue to be available 24-7 for support and advocacy. We can provide extensive services over the phone and through video conferencing:
· Individual and systems advocacy
· Restraining order assistance and preparation
· Safety planning
· Support during sexual assault exams
· Developing coping strategies
· Information and referral
River Source Family Center is currently offering many outdoor in-person, as well as virtual, activities.
