The Family Care Council (FCC)
The Family Care Council (FCC) is made up of parents, grandparents and guardians of people with developmental disabilities, along with self-advocates. Members are appointed to the Council by the Governor. Representatives of organizations and agencies who serve consumers who are developmentally disabled are also part of the Council. There are 15 Councils throughout Florida.
The Council provides education and outreach to other families. We work closely with the Agency for Persons with Disability (APD), and assist families in navigating the system to get the help they need. We also make referrals to agencies and organizations who can assist individuals and families with services.
The Family Care Council is the only family voice in Florida on behalf of those who are developmentally disabled. We meet monthly to share ideas, discuss matters pertaining to APD and the Florida Legislature, and receive information that will be helpful to individuals and families in our community. All are welcome at these meetings. We encourage individuals and families to become part of the decision-making process that affects the lives of their loved ones.
For those residing in Palm Beach County, contact Eileen Licitra at (561) 281-9311, or email at email@example.com for more information about our meetings, or if you are in need of assistance. Outside Palm Beach County contact the Family Care Council Florida at 1-800-470-8101, or https://www.fccflorida.org/ to find a Council near you.
