The Alliance for Strong Families and Communities includes FEI Behavioral Health, a wholly owned social enterprise unit that is aligned with its mission and vision. FEI, one of the largest behavioral health companies in the U.S., provides organizations with flexible solutions for the full spectrum of workforce resilience goals.
A number of Alliance members work closely with FEI by serving as counseling providers within FEI’s employee assistance program network or by offering crisis counseling to FEI’s crisis management services clients.
As a social enterprise, FEI offers three service areas:
- Employee assistance programs that enhance productivity and morale
- Work-life services program that helps worker productivity and decreases absenteeism.
- Crisis management services that assist airlines, corporations, government organizations, and other entities to prepare for and address the human side of disaster management
The Alliance shares office space in its national operations center in Milwaukee with its social enterprise.
The Alliance's president and CEO and board of directors work to create and maintain an environment that promotes the sharing of ideas, information, and resources between the Alliance and its social enterprise.
