The mission of the Fentress County Children's Center of the Cumberlands (FCCC) is to provide a place of comfort and safety for children who have been abused, to equip children and parents with the tools necessary to heal from devastating trauma, and to prevent child abuse in our community.  This critical needs grant is to support the Executive Director for 8 months, who is responsible for: (1) providing access to community resources, diagnosis/treatment services, and mental health services; (2) reducing the trauma experienced by child victims by helping them develop increased feelings of safety; and (3) ensuring that victims receive the support necessary to promote healing of the mind, body, and soul. The Center has secured another grant which will support the Executive Director that will begin in the Fall.
