Keeley Welsh

Director of Waiver HCBS Waiver Services

I know first-hand from having a sister with special needs growing up how important in-home care is not only for the individual, but for the family as well. My sister passed away 6 years ago but I feel like I was called upon to continue coordinating services as a tribute to her. This is why I am passionate about providing quality services and I am proud of the caring, dedicated individuals FCS has on its entire team.

I am a busy-body mom that tries to keep up with her toddlers while managing that work/life balance! This job gives me so much joy whether it’s hearing what new ideas staff bring to the table or seeing the progress our clients have made over the years. I feel very blessed to work for such a great company while helping others find the passion they never knew they had for this field!

Pam Hrudka, DSS

It’s hard to pinpoint one solid reason that I love working for FCS! I will say this, I love the diversity of working with individuals both young and old! I have enjoyed meeting new people almost on a weekly basis! The staff work very hard to work with you and create a schedule that the staff are comfortable with. Never hesitate to ask if you have a problem or question! Although this job can be a bit challenging at times, and will test your patience, hang in there, the rewards are far greater than the challenge. About me: I have worked with individuals with special abilities for over 25 years! This is a clientele that I really enjoy!
