Family Service Center’s Prevention and Early Intervention Programs aim to increase prevention and counseling services for youth and their families, encourage community collaboration, and enhance youth and family support across Galveston County. Through prevention, counseling and other related services provided to youth in schools, FSC aims to support the mental health needs of youth and aid them in graduating high school and attending college.


Initially funded through Rebuild Texas, Dickinson School-Based Services were established in Dickinson ISD following Hurricane Harvey to assist youth and their families deal with the trauma and loss following unprecedented flooding in the Dickinson and northern-Galveston County communities. FSC clinicians are co-located at four Dickinson ISD school campuses, including Dickinson High, Kranz Junior High, McAdams Junior High, and Calder Road Elementary Schools. FSC’s Dickinson School-Based Services clinicians also provide office-based counseling services for families participating in family counseling services.

The Family and Youth Success (FAYS) program helps families deal with everyday struggles. FSC works to make families stronger and help youth learn to overcome challenges and develop and succeed in healthy ways. Through the FAYS program, FSC provides short-term individual, family and group counseling services to youth under age 18 in Galveston, Liberty, and Chambers Counties. FAYS services help bring out the best in family life through communication and cooperation. Services are available at FSC offices, schools and community-based settings with the majority of youth receiving services during the school year. Services are free to families who qualify and are funded by the State of Texas.
