January is National Mentoring Month

National Mentoring Month recognizes the importance of individuals who make a connection with youth and inspire them to create bright futures for themselves. Mentors are especially important to children served by Franklin County Children Services because they offer individual care and attention to youth. They serve as positive role models and help guide youth toward creating their own successes. We take this opportunity to thank our mentors for sharing their lives with our youth.

FCCS has compiled information about resources available to the Franklin County community during the COVID-19 pandemic on our COVID-19 Resources webpage. There are resources for caring for children in case of illness, accessing testing and parenting tips. You’ll also find information on mental health, child care, education, recipes and more. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for frequent updates on resources available in the community.
