Mission: 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.
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.

On several occasions I have had the good fortune to donate some still usable items to Family Services of Redlands. They have been plesant to deal with, efficient, and provide those articles to local families and individuals who are in need. I prefer to donate to an agency who works for local individuals. Using the Family Service Association of Redlands I know I am helping the local area and working with an honorable agency.

We love the opportunity to provide needed clothing, food, and other necessities to a well-run organization that helps those who need assistance. We have also been landlords and worked with Family Services when they paid rent for a tenant who hit hard times. All facets of the organization are exemplary and we will continue to support them well into the future.
