Family Services Inc. takes the responsiblity for the development and well being on famlies in need within Blair County. They blieve and act upon the fact that a healthy community supports and empowers families. As a past employee and a current board member I have witnessed the empowerment to women who receive services through Family Services programs and the dedication of staff to ensure a strength based approach in advocateing for domestic violence, sexual assualt, and other womens issues that arise in our community re: income, drugs and alcohol, housing, medical and other issues. I am always pleased when I am out in public and a previous client comes up to me to share how her life is now positive and she fells better about herself. My comment is always "you did the work, we just supported your decisions"

I was a battered woman.....the shelter was not established when I needed the help....When I saw there was one in my area, I started to donate....I had a good job, was raising my sons on my own but was still affected by all the years of abuse....Now that I am retired, I have been an advocate for the shelter for abused women . My church has been donating food, clothing, paper products and many other items that will help families get started on their own.. We will continue to donate as long as there is a need, and unfortunately, there will always be a need. My heart and prayers go out to these women and their children....Those of us with sons, really need to educate them about abuse of any kind and what it can do and that it is wrong.....Those of us with daughters need to educate them about self esteem and how to stand up for themselves..Not to settle for low standards....NO ONE deserves to be abused.
