Why We Support FCSN
We are inspired by FCSN’s mission— to help individuals with developmental handicaps and their families find love, hope, respect, and support through integrated community involvement.
We hear desperate cries of families seeking help for their loved ones. FCSN is building a third center and developing more programs with a cost of more than $3.5M.
We believe in FCSN’s leadership— dedicated parents, volunteers, and employees with business savvy, hearts, and brains. FCSN is different and far superior to alternatives and consistently rated as top service provider to special needs citizens by the State of California.
Emcee: Matt Keller
Matt Keller is a familiar face for FCSN. He has been our emcee since the very first FCSN Special Needs Got Talent (now known as Special Needs Talent Showcase) in 2015. He has returned every single year since then. In 2017, Matt also started emceeing for FCSN Gala as well. His wonderful sense of humor and personality won the audience over and kept them thoroughly entertained.
Matt is currently the Media and Public Relations Supervisor at Valley Water. Before that, he was an anchor and reporter for more than 20 years. Matt won two Emmy awards and Edward R. Murrow award. He was most recently a reporter and fill-in anchor for ABC7 New here in the Bay Area. During his time off, Matt enjoys running, spending time with his family and supporting his friends at FCSN.
Osgood Renovation Project
The Acquisition of Osgood Property
For the last ten years or so, periodically, FCSN board would look for properties to expand our facility in East Bay. In the early years, we were interested in properties that were close to our Fremont Center (now Chenming & Margaret Hu Center). Two years ago, after discussing with CK and his management team, the board made the decision to look for a much larger property of 10,000-15,000 sf and not be limited to the vicinity of the existing center. The idea was to find a large enough space to make it our future headquarters and to satisfy our needs for the next decade.

Not all the special needs adults can fit into FCSN’s existing adult day program. For those with behavior problem, it is especially difficult to find programs for them. For the past year, FCSN has put in an extra effort to help those hi needs clients. In May of this year, Linmei Chiao created the Adaptive Skill Training program. Their daily routine and activities are captured in this moving music video, to the FCSN song “Friends of Dreams”, performed by FCSN musicians Lawrence Wang and Greg Hebert.
