Giving Back


From its origins, the fundamental principles of Family Centered Treatment Foundation (FCTF) have revolved around the concept of Giving Back. Paralleling the concepts we instill in others, giving back is viewed by FCTF as the fundamental element of change and healing. We see giving as a therapeutic process that enables us and the families we serve the ability to discover what we/they possess within ourselves/themselves, which is to find something of value and worth to others. The ability to "do" for others becomes a method for identifying the intrinsic value and dignity we hold within.



Every Bit Helps!

Use this PayPal Donate Button or click on the Donate button at the bottom of our website to make a tax deductible donation to Family Centered Treatment Foundation and have a positive impact for families in crisis!

As a small not-for-profit organization, we need the support and assistance of community members to help us accomplish our mission. Without the generous support of our friends and community we would struggle to continue advancing services for families in crisis that need our assistance. We would be honored to provide a letter of thanks and acknowledgement for your records.

100% of unspecified donations are utilized towards research or direct programmatic training. Research is badly needed to determine best practices and effective treatments for high risk families and people in need.

If you have questions or would like to speak privately, we would be happy to talk. Please use the Contact FCTF button at the bottom of our website to reach out.
