Mission: FAMILY SUPPORT LINE (FSL) was founded in 1984 when a group of professionals and citizens concerned about the increasing incidence of child sexual abuse, established a volunteer program to address the need. In 1988, this effort was reestablished and incorporated as FAMILY SUPPORT LINE of Delaware County, Inc. Our vision is to realize a full continuum of specialized services that prevents child sexual abuse and cares for children and families who have experienced this and other types of family trauma.
