Children Requiring Assistance and the FRC

The FRC system was created to provide resources before court intervention for families who are struggling with their child’s behavior. These youth, formerly known as Children in Need of Services (CHINS), typically have issues with the following:


      • Repeatedly running away 
      • Consistently skipping school 
      • Breaking curfew 
      • Following reasonable rules set by a parent

Previously, these youth were served through the juvenile justice system. Now, families can visit the FRC and be connected with community services to help their child get on track for success. The FRC has clinicians who can evaluate youth and develop a Family Support Plan to address the child’s needs.
