The Family & Community Partnership (FCP) is a program for low income families who are at risk for child abuse/neglect. This might include refugee families where there is family violence, alcohol/drug abuse, or families so overwhelmed that case workers are concerned about the well-being of the children.
The program contracts with community organizations and some of these have staff that speak the following languages: Karen, Amharic, Spanish and Hmong. If a family is eligible to participate in FCP and speak one of the above languages, a referral will be made to that specific agency for services. If the family speaks a different language other than the ones listed above the agency will request interpreter services.
To apply, an application should be completed and faxed to 651-266-7751. When FCP social workers meet with the family initially, there will be paperwork to review and sign. The FCP social workers do not provide case management services. A referral will be made to one of the community agencies that contract with Ramsey County and a case manager will work with the family
