About Us‎ > ‎

Welcome to Family Services



For 125 years, our mission is to strengthen families and communities through counseling, education, community building, and advocacy.  This mission cannot be upheld without acknowledging the impact of racism and the oppression of people.  When this is not recognized the result weakens our entire community and creates significant public health and mental health issue.

Family Services, Community Services for the Deaf, and Womanline stand together with our community against racism and the trauma of all oppression experienced by the entire community and nation.

Family Services is prepared to help all residents with access to mental health services as each and every one of us navigate racism and oppression and the impact it has upon our lives.

Mental Health

Nearly half of all Americans will experience the symptoms of a mental illness at some point in life. If it happens to you or your family, you are not alone. Each year, Family Services’ professional and courteous counseling staff provide hundreds of individuals, couples, and families with confidential counseling within a safe environment, to address a wide range of concerns.

Counseling is available for individuals or families affected by: 

  • physical, verbal, emotional, mental, neglect, and/or sexual violence
  • eating disorders
  • trauma (any kind) 
  • drug use and other addictions
  • anxiety disorders
  • divorce 
  • life transitions
  • anger
  • stress management
  • communication problems
  • Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing
  • Isolated seniors
  • Crime victims (any victimization)  

Our counseling services promote health and well being among participants, and encourage utilization of responsible behaviors, non-violence and feelings management.  Family Services utilizes the Ecological Theory framework as our best practice counseling model.  This model helps individuals understand that no one is an island, but is part of a much broader system, where the individual affects their environment and the environment affects the individual.
