Description

Friendship Community Center (FCC) provides structured scheduled activities that promote socialization, recovery, self-advocacy, development of natural supports, and maintenance of community living skills, under the direct supervision of a mental health professional. FCC conducts daily group sessions in a safe, homelike environment for our members to explore their personal empowering goals and achieve them.
