Family & Community Services

"

With deep roots in the neighborhoods we serve, we help build strong families and vibrant communities. Using a person-centered approach, we focus on the entire family’s needs – providing access to counseling; community centers; and literacy, after school, and employment services that support family life. We shelter families who are homeless and help those who are in crisis to keep children safe. When children, youth and adults with special needs are unable to remain at home, we provide caring, family-like settings.

And through strategic partnerships with community organizations, government agencies, and private foundations we are bringing resources and opportunity to communities where it is most needed.
