Our mission is to help families and individuals help themselves through direct services, collaboration, and advocacy.
Part of the community since 1879, Family Services has been making a difference in people’s lives for 140 years. Since the beginning, we have sought to meet the changing needs of individuals and families in our community. Over time, our organization has evolved to include more than micro-level casework practice and now helps to shape policy, enhance systems and services, and improve the quality of community life, while still maintaining the direct services that support our neighbors. Family Services provides programs and services throughout the Hudson Valley including: Youth Services, Family Programs, Victim Services, Prevention, Community Safety, Behavioral Health Centers and the Family Partnership Center—all geared to provide hope, improve lives and strengthen community.
