Spotlight: Family Care Network & MM4K


The Family Care Network is a private, nonprofit children and families services provider established in 1987 with the sole purpose of creating family-based treatment programs as an alternative to group home or institutional care for children and youth. In it’s 25+ year history, the agency has grown to serve over 1,400 children, youth and families annually in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties through 17 distinct programs designed to strengthen and preserve families and individuals.


At any given time, there are over 900 children in foster care in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties who need support and services.  Basic program funding sources are often limited in scope and do not allow FCNI to fully meet the many needs of the children, youth and families we serve. Miracle Miles for Kids is a fundraiser created to provide private funding to allow FCNI to fully support the crucial needs of children, youth and families affected by trauma. Last year, over 2,500 people participated in Miracle Miles for Kids, all working to make a difference in the lives of the children, youth and families served by the Family Care Network.

Your participation in Miracle Miles for Kids helps FCNI make a difference in the lives of those it serves. The funds earned through registration and pledging help to meet needs such as: housing, clothing, mentoring, life skills development, extra-curricular activities and therapeutic services, of the over 1,400 children, youth and families served by FCNI annually.
