FSCs are staffed by social work practitioners providing an integrated practice of casework, group work and community work to meet the diverse and complex needs of clients. This could include support for those with marital, parenting, employment and financial needs. Couples with marital issues, or who are contemplating divorce, may wish to visit their nearest FSC for help. There are currently 44 FSCs situated island-wide.
