NORWALK, CT - Family & Children’s Agency (FCA) is the recipient of a grant worth over $200,000 from the Connecticut Office of Policy and Management (OPM) to support FCA’s involvement in the Fairfield County Information Technology Collaborative (FCITC). The Collaborative is a partnership between FCA, Family Centers of Greenwich and FSW of Bridgeport to create a shared technology platform. This funding will support the purchase of both software and hardware, along with user-trainings as the Agency implements a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).

“The VDI project is a critical component of Phase II of FCITC, which is centered on projects that will integrate and upgrade IT infrastructure and operations across the three agencies into a shared model,” said Robert F. Cashel, President & CEO of FCA. “This will enable the Agency to replace our current in-house infrastructure with a more cost-efficient and high-quality performing IT infrastructure.”

VDI will allow the Agency to work more efficiently by increasing both automation of tasks and user mobility. Moreover, it will increase cost efficiency and is projected to reduce FCA’s annual IT operating expenses by more than 40 percent.

The goal of FCITC is to enhance the client experience, improve performance and develop best practices for the 45,000 area residents the three agencies collectively reach each year. This initiative will strengthen each organization’s position as a leader in social and mental health services throughout Fairfield County.
