Family Focused Solutions (FFS) helps families receiving state assistance through the Families First Program gain the knowledge and support they need to end their need for welfare assistance.   Counselors in this program provide support to aid families in addressing challenges such as mental health concerns, family violence situations, alcohol and drug treatment, adult and child learning difficulties, and child behavior and health concerns. 

FFS counselors help families by  

  • Helping families identify their individual needs, goals, and aspirations;
  • Assisting with creating a Families First work plan that best fits the family’s specific needs;
  • Providing Individual and/or family counseling;
  • Connecting families to community providers for help with on-going needs;
  • Arranging for educational assessments for adults that have difficulty with reading, writing, math, etc;
  • Providing guidance with disability applications; and
  • Advocating for the family.
  • Providing life skills education, particularly in the areas of financial literacy, parenting, social relationships, coping skills, making choices, and time management.

 TNCSA’s Family Focused Solutions program has been helping families participating in the Families First program since 2000.  Since that time we have helped more than 6000 families, and look forward to helping many more.
