As a caregiver, your voice matters. ISK’s Family Support Advisory Council (FSAC) advises the ISK Board of Directors on issues affecting families of youth with severe emotional disturbances, behavioral challenges, or substance use.

The advisory council is made up of parents and caregivers who provide input and recommend changes that can further help families and improve services for youth. FSAC gives families the opportunity to share their experiences and be heard.

We welcome anyone who is a parent or caregiver of a youth who receives services from ISK to attend a meeting and learn more. For more information on joining FSAC, call (269) 553-7120 or email

FSAC meets on the third Wednesday of every month at 5:00 p.m. at ISK’s Youth & Family Services located at 418 West Kalamazoo Avenue. Click here for a map of the meeting.

Snacks are provided at all meetings. A stipend is available to help defray travel and childcare costs.
