Welcome to Family Involvement Center

Our Mission:

Assist and support Families/caregivers and help policymakers, agencies, and providers transform systems to ensure children and youth with emotional, behavioral, or mental health disorders succeed in school, live with their families, avoid delinquency, and become productive adults.

Family Involvement Center is a not-for-profit, family-directed  run organization that was founded by Jane Kallal in 2001.  The majority of our employees and Board of Directors have personal life experience raising children with emotional, behavioral, and/or mental health challenges.

The approach of the Family Involvement Center is to provide an atmosphere that establishes authentic connections utilizing parent to parent support that:

  • Build trust
  • Instills hope
  • Inspire families on their journey to self-sufficiency
  • Cultivate meaningful relationships with families & system stakeholders
  • Develop an informal network of natural supports by connecting parents to parents and youth to youth within their local communities

The Spirit of the Family Involvement Center is to:

  • Reflect the values, beliefs and voices of family members who have “walked” in their shoes
  • Personally understand concept of resiliency
  • Strive to build and nurture sustainable partnerships between family members and professionals
  • Model a solution focused approach

    “It is thought that families who receive consistent support will not only achieve higher levels of community integration and well-being, but will also become less entangled with (and dependent upon) formal services.”
