A nonprofit organization

$2,165 raised by 27 donors

Founded in 1898, Family Service has continuously provided service for over 120 years. Our mission was, and still is, "To alleviate poverty, encourage self-sufficiency, and promote the dignity of all people."

Community needs have changed over the years, but the tradition continues today with programs providing emergency support, rental assistance, education, and referrals that focus on helping families become self-sufficient. We utilize a comprehensive case management service delivery system that addresses and identifies the overall needs of the family.

It is with the generous support of the community that we are able to make a difference in people's lives.
