The counseling services branch of Youthville Family Consultation Service in Wichita and Youthville Community Based Services in Dodge City and Concordia are transitioning to a new name: FCS Counseling.

“The primary reason for the name change was some misunderstanding among the general public because of the name ‘Youthville,’ ” said Gerald Snell, Youthville senior vice president for clinical services.

“Most folks we see for services are the general public. We think this (name change) will help them better understand the breadth and scope of the services we provide.”

The changes did not affect any jobs, he said.

FCS Counseling operates at several locations throughout the state, including the following: Dodge City and Concordia; some school districts in Newton, Wichita and Haysville; the Delano area in Wichita; and in east Wichita at Wichita Psychiatric Consultants.

Those branches will also operate a separate website,

Youthville is a nonprofit organization and receives some state funds for its services, including foster care.
