To nurture, educate, and provide opportunities within the community by placing emphasis on rebuilding the family, repairing division, and developing strategies to empower change to create a strong family support system.
The Family First Center of Lake County (FFC) was born out of the vision of many dedicated individuals. Dr. Evelyn Chenier in conjunction with Pastor John I Caples discovered a need for a community center for all residents. FFC is a "Faith-Based", 501 (c)(3), not-for-profit organization that is committed to bringing about positive change in the community.
FFC offers programs and services that are designed to empower the entire family with the necessary tools to change their lives. It is operated under the leadership of Executive Director/Community Psychologist Evelyn Chenier, PhD, LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor).
FFC has many visits/clients per year at our downtown Waukegan facility for support services which focus on resume building,emergency needs referrals, and SMARTIES.
SMARTIES is an after school program held each Wednesday with a focus on Chemistry and Scientific Experiements.
