Donations are always accepted to help the agency provide a special bus ride
and programs for families to visit their loved one in prison.
The holidays can be a difficult time for families with a loved one in prison. When you provide a gift to a child or family - you will see the meaning of the holiday season come to life!
Make your commitment today to support FIC's families this season. No time to shop - make a donation and we'll do the shopping for you.
Families in Crisis has 60 children and more families that are in need of a brighter holiday. Once holiday gifts are collected - FIC Case Managers, knowing each child and family, choose appropriate gifts based on their interests and distribute them to the families.

How you can help year round...
Mother’s & Father’s Day- provide a gift or a gift card – so that a child can give their parent a present.
Back to School time- each August we publish a list of the number & ages of the children in our programs that need back to school supplies. You and a group of friends or co-workers can get together and make a big impact. Purchase and donate a backpack and/or school supplies for children of prisoners or make a donation so we can purchase specialized supplies
Holiday Time-each November we publish a list of the number & ages of the children in our programs that need holiday gifts. Purchase a holiday gift/gift card for children of prisoners or make a donation so we can purchase needed gifts. Make a donation to the agency so that we can host a family event at the holiday time, a holiday party in the community or a special bus ride to visit their loved one in prison.
Birthday’s – Birthday’s happen year round. Throughout the year we provide support and care for children and families of prisoners, you can help by purchasing a gift or gift card for children of prisoners so they can have something special.
