Family Support Services

Additionally, the Family Support social workers collaborate directly with children, parents, individuals and staff to provide ongoing support, ensuring that those at-risk families and individuals have access to resources that will increase personal growth and autonomy. The Family Support Services program includes Senior Services and a Food Pantry at our West Town location.
