First Coast Families with Children from China is dedicated to creating a supportive, active, inclusive member experience for every one of our families.
Who We Are
First Coast FCC is the local chapter of Families with Children from China. We are devoted to working with both the children and parents involved in adoption from China from the greater Jacksonville area.
We’re here to help support, guide, inform, and most of all, provide a friendly, helpful community of families with children from China. Our group serves Florida families in the Jacksonville, St. Augustine, the Beaches, Orange Park, Fleming Island, Green Cove Springs, Palm Coast, and surrounding areas.
What We Do
First Coast FCC holds monthly and annual events which promote socialization with other children adopted from China, insight, and support for their unique issues as they grow. We also offer cultural information and education, regular play groups, and special events to celebrate Chinese holidays and festivals.
For parents and prospective parents, we sponsor regular support-group meetings to discuss the issues surrounding international adoption. Pre-adoption support for those considering adoption from China is also available through group networking. In addition, we meet for an FCC Family Dinners to meet new prospective families, celebrate new arrivals and referrals and to strengthen and renew our FCC friendships.
First Coast FCC membership is open to anyone who has adopted, is considering adopting, or is a family in the process of adopting a child from China.
