The County of Orange Social Services Agency (SSA) is pleased to announce the availability of its Families and Communities Together (FaCT) platform annual report for Fiscal Year (FY) 2020-2021, covering the period from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021. The report addresses the critical role that FaCT and its network of 16 Family Resource Centers (FRCs) play in the County’s efforts to ensure children in Orange County grow up in stable, nurturing families and safe, supportive communities.

For over 25 years, FaCT has played an integral role in SSA’s efforts to prevent child abuse and neglect and help at-risk families thrive. FaCT FRCs provide family strengthening and support services to the community, ranging from counseling and parenting classes, comprehensive case management services, educational and training programs, as well as advocacy and community engagement. FaCT serves as a public-private partnership between SSA and numerous community-based organizations that collectively work to provide engagement and outreach, direct service delivery, fund development and professional/staff training on best practices.

In Fiscal Year 2020-2021, FaCT FRCs served more than 11,000 individuals and nearly 5,000 families.
