Making Room For Hope


For more than 112 years, Family & Children Services has been the voice of concern and compassion for our most vulnerable citizens. The Agency’s mission is embraced by our 20-member Board of Directors and staff of 200, who commit every day to being A Source of Hope for those we serve. Family & Children Services responds to each community and its changing needs, inviting community members to join us through donation and volunteer service.

The Agency offers a continuum of behavioral health and child welfare programs and services as one organization – board members, staff and foster parents – with a unity of purpose. All services are strength-based and client-centered, supporting individuals and families as they create healthy changes in their lives. Family & Children Services is dedicated to – and known for – best practices in human-service delivery in the community.

Mission Statement   “To support, strengthen and preserve the safety, well-being and dignity of children, individuals and families.”
