I was a member of a local church with an on-site day care center serving mostly low income families that was in jeopardy of closing due to financial difficulties. Family Service of Morris County had been involved with the day care center for many years, providing social workers, training for teachers, and educational assistance. When FSMC found out about the financial situation and the impending closure of the center, they stepped in to help immediately. Today, the Madison Day Care Center is a model of a healthy, well run organization. FSMC has transformed the Center, which provides much needed services to low income families. In addition, through its resource network, corporate and individual volunteers are working at the Center, improving the lives of the children and families we touch. Thank you, FSMC!

Almost ten years ago my wife and I were looking for living options for my mother-in-law who recently lost her husband and her vision. Mom decided that she wanted to move in with our family however we wanted to explore what options she might have for day or evening activities with her peers. Not knowing which way to turn my wife was encourage to seek counsel of Family Service of Morris County. After a brief call with the team at FSMC my wife recieved a complete package of materials two days later laying out the various options for mom. It not only included day and evening activities but also alternative living options should mom want them. Needless to say our search for assistance was over however our committment to help others in our community just began. We have now been involved with FSMC for almost ten years in various volunteer roles. Thank you FSMC for the great work that you do to support our community!

I started off at FSMC as a volunteer in PR and am now a Board member. What is outstanding about FSMC? EVERYTHING! What truly makes it an outstanding organization is the expert and very caring staff from social workers to management to the person who answers the phone. For nearly 200 years, now, the staff of Family Service been passionate about helping people in our community when they most need it. If you are a child at a daycare center we serve and your family needs a hand, our social worker is there for you and we also have our own low cost but exceptional daycare center in Madison. If you are visually impaired, we can pair you with a friendly visitor who can help you with what you need, whether it be grocery shopping or training on a tandem bike. If you are a senior and need a safe way to get out of the house and socialize, we have three senior day centers. If you are a caretaker of a senior, our experts will help guide you through the challenges in taking care of a loved one. Substance abuse issues? Again, we are experts and can help out you and your family.
