FCGC offers a wide variety of services including individual, group and family counseling, care coordination, psychological assessment, screening, alcohol and drug prevention programs for adults and youth, HIV/AIDS prevention, and cultural activities, such as talking circles, traditional healing, and community events.
In 1997 FCGC had a staff of four and an annual budget of $150,000 with contracts from Indian Health Service and Alameda County.
As a result of this community planning process FCGC developed an innovative Holistic System of Care for Native Americans in an Urban Environment (Nebelkopf & King 2003).
The Acting Surgeon General of the United States visited the FCGC Youth Program in 2008 and gave the Tribal Athletics Program a Healthy Youth for a Healthy Future Champion Award for our efforts to curb and prevent childhood obesity within our community and our dedication to improving the overall health of our nation's youth.
In the Circle of Care Needs Assessment, it became clear that children were being labeled as substance abusers, delinquents, emotionally disturbed, or having learning disorders depending upon the institution that identified the child as "having a problem." Staff of FCGC
realized that these were the same children struggling with imbalance, effects of historical trauma, and family dysfunction.
