Family Empowerment Council (FEC) is a grassroots, family-oriented, person-centered agency made up of parents, consumers, and professionals. We are firmly committed to the belief that every individual should be included in the community to whatever extent he or she chooses. Each person should be informed about the choices available in life and be provided the ways and means to access those choices, thus making decisions at whatever level possible. People with disabilities should be part of the natural system within their own community. Most of FEC's programs are available to families in Orange and Sullivan Counties of New York State.
