Our Community Inclusion Program facilitates connections between children with disabilities and their families and the larger Dane County community.
FSRC is guided by these principles:
All children, including children with disabilities, benefit by growing up as a secure member of a family and sharing in positive, long-term relationships with other family members. Families have great capacity to care for children who have disabilities when they receive support from friends, neighbors, human service professionals, and other community members. Parents are generally in the best position to know their own needs, to find solutions, and to choose the kinds of services that will help them to care for their child with a disability. A sense of trust and confidence in continuity of support is important to establish and preserve with each family. Communities are enriched when all people are valued and included as full members.
