Our mission is to break the cycle of homelessness by equipping families with minor children with the skills they need to gain self-sufficiency.
OUR VISION:
  
Together we will build a community free from poverty, discrimination, and neglect.  We envision a community where all members stand on solid ground with the skills and confidence they need to achieve their dreams.  When Residents leave the Center, they will have reliable housing, parenting skills, a steady income and savings, and affordable transportation. 
 
Tax deductible contributions can be made either at the top of this page, (via PayPal), or to FFCC at PO Box 951, Ellsworth, ME 04605.
