Family Focused Solutions

Have you been hit hard and just need a little help?   Are the struggles of everyday life overwhelming you?  We are here to help!  Since 2000, TNCSA’s Family Focused Solutions (FFS) program (formerly known as Family Services Counseling) has assisted over 6,000 families just like yours! 

Our counselors assist families who are currently receiving assistance through the Families First Program by offering guidance and support to enable folks just like you to make the necessary changes and find the necessary resources that can help them become self-supporting and live the life they want.

Our counselors do what they do best….advocate for you!!!  Our sole desire is to see you succeed!   Our staff will work diligently to assist you with such issues as alcohol/drug dependency, family violence, child behavior problems, adult education issues, individual and or family counseling, and much more! We will work with you to develop a plan that best meets your family’s needs! Once the needs are identified we go straight to work connecting you with available resources within your own community to make those goals of yours a reality! 

Don’t get caught up in looking at the past and all the mistakes you’ve made.  Instead, look toward your future and all the possibilities that lie ahead.  Let us help you in making the right choices that could change you and your family’s lives forever!
