Atlantic County: Back to School Issues & Family Crisis Intervention
Atlantic County, New Jersey government would like all families with children between the ages of 10-17 to know that if you are dealing with various life challenges, related to back-to-school issues that help is available.
The challenges can be many: Adjusting to a new school year and other activities that can become challenges to both children and parents.
This is where the Atlantic County Juvenile/Family Crisis Intervention Unit (FCIU) comes into play.
Atlantic County government describes it this way:
FCIU is a legally mandated program that is available 24-hours to intercede in family conflicts and help strengthen the family unit. Its services include short-term crisis stabilization, family assessment, case management, treatment planning and referrals to appropriate community-based services.
Because many of the previous COVID-19 era restrictions have been eased, I person meetings are again possible.
This service is available by appointment only, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Appointments can also be conducted by phone or by virtual technology, to help intervene and help to resolve any family conflicts that may arise.
Here is all of the pertinent contact information as follows:
