Family Violence Program to Survivors
Hello checking rn.
Family Service Agency of Burbank (FSA) has been providing support, education, advocacy and intervention services for those suffering with current or past experiences of domestic violence, and their children for more than 25 years through our C.A.R.E. Program for Families. The C.A.R.E. program was established in 1991 to strengthen FSA’s role in the larger community and aid in the eradication of family violence.
We know that domestic violence is prevalent in every community and must be addressed. It affects all people regardless of age, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, or nationality. When left unaddressed the devastating consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and last a lifetime.
FSA assists families effected by violence in the following ways:
Intervention Services: including assistance with restraining orders and emergency shelter
Individual and Family counseling
Peer Support Groups and Education
Therapeutic Monitored Visitation
Food, Clothing, furniture, household goods, Etc.
