Welcome & Important Information

Response to the Tragedy in Dayton

FAMILY SERVICES AVAILABLE TO MEET
THE NEEDS OF FAMILIES AND VICTIMS

As we have for the past 124 years, Family Services is here to help anyone trying to cope with the tragedy that shattered our community two weekends ago. The Family Center at the convention center closed Friday; victims, families, friends, witnesses and anyone touched by this horrific event can contact us for help.

Family Services receives special dollars from the Victims of Crime Act through the Ohio Attorney General's Office to support victims. With these dollars there will never be a fee for our services and staff are prepared to assist with Crime Victim Compensation. 

Our staff is intensively trained in Trauma Informed Care and provides both Psychiatric Services, Counseling, and Case Management for anyone experiencing a trauma.   It is increasingly important to remember that one of the most important things we can do right now is support each other, however that may be from just talking to sharing silence.

Look for someone who seems stuck in the process and encourage them to seek help.  For consultation, additional information or an appointment please call 937-222-9481. Staff are prepared to assist to talk (short term and long term) without wait. 

Family Services is accredited by the Council on Accreditation and certified by the Ohio Department of Mental Health to assure this community that we subscribe to the highest possible professional standards in the industry.

Monday- 8:30a to 5p
Tuesday- 8:30a to 8p
Wednesday- 8:30a to 8p
