About Us

Freedom. Confirmation. Responsibility. Support.

The mission of Franklin County Residential Services, Inc. (FCRS) is to provide the highest quality programs, services, and supports to eligible children, adults, and their families so that individuals with developmental disabilities can have temporary and long-terms residential options and opportunities to achieve their full potential in their homes and communities.

FCRS recognizes each individual is different, and promotes the provision of supports and services on an individual basis.

The model for the development and monitoring of all programs and supports is based on the principles that each person can take an active part in his or her life.  This model generates an optimistic orientation toward all individuals and their families regardless of the types or degrees of disabilities.  With individually planned supports, Franklin County Residential Services, Inc. believes each individual is capable of growth and choice-making regarding the direction of his or her life.  This model encourages and promotes Freedom, Confirmation, Responsibility, and Support.
