Programs: Family Service Association currently operates two primary programs. Family Support is provided to low-income families needing assistance through a financial crisis that threatens their ability to maintain employment and prevent homelessness. The Home Again Program helps homeless families stabilize toward permanent housing and employment. A case management system helps staff work with families over time toward greater self-sufficiency. The agency also distributes surplus food and extensive holiday support programming.

Family Service Association was founded in 1898 and has continuously provided services to low-income and homeless families for over 100 years. Our mission was, and still is: "To alleviate poverty, encourage self-sufficiency and promote the dignity of all people." This tradition continues today with programs that provide emergency support, case management, education and referral that focus on helping families become more self-sufficient.

The case workers are very knowledgeable of the services in the community and also have many useful programs within the FSA program to pull ... more »
