Available to Fairfax County families, Family Peer Support Partners (FPSPs) are trained professionals with expertise and valuable information to share with caregivers of system-involved youth. Children's Services Act (CSA) funding pays for FPSP services at youth and family treatment team meetings in Fairfax County schools and agencies. FPSP services are also available via community referrals to any caregiver of a youth under 21 living in Fairfax County who does not utilize CSA funding for services. FPSP services are available FREE OF CHARGE through a grant with Healthy Minds Fairfax in both English and Spanish for up to 8 hours per year, per individual (if youth does not utilize CSA funding). If you need additional caregiver support, please explore an application to CSA via the youth's school social worker for additional service options.
