Donate to Support Families in Your Community

We understand that families come in different shapes and sizes. So do the challenges they face.

We work with families, couples, individuals, youth, members of the 2SLGBTQI+ community and new parents. We provide professional mental health services in individual and group formats to the most vulnerable members of our community who are experiencing mild to moderate mental health distress. We support families navigating changes or relationship challenges to help develop skills and coping strategies.

We work with our community partners to ensure that seamless service is there for those who want or need it.

FSO helps clients heal and build resilience by developing skills to manage emotions, stabilize relationships, reduce stress and anxiety and connect to community resources.
