FCSfit: Members Modeling the Mission

Get "FCSfit" with AAFCS!

FCSfit is a member initiative focused on setting small, realistic goals and delivering resources and community support to our FCS community as they "model the mission" of AAFCS, making informed decisions about their own well-being, relationships, and resources with the goal of achieving an optimal quality of life. 

FCSfit is focused on delivering content and opportunities aligned with the mission and vision of AAFCS. Information is delivered in our online Wellness Wednesday communication, which is delivered to our members' inboxes and curated on on our blog.
