Affordable and Open to All

Clients come from diverse communities across the full economic spectrum and life cycle.  Services are available on a sliding-scale fee basis.  No one is turned away within our service area, regardless of their ability to pay.  Most services are available at no out-of-pocket cost to the client.

Expert Staff

The Family Service staff is comprised of highly-qualified professionals with a deep understanding of dynamic social-service issues, including bilingual/bicultural challenges. Our clinicians average over 20 years of post-license experience, all have Master’s degrees, and all but three are licensed clinical social workers (LCSW).  Our caring staff makes a proven difference in the lives of thousands of community residents…every day.

Services are available in both English and Spanish and are available regardless of the individual's ability to pay.
