Since 1900, Family Services has been caring for children, seniors and families in Montgomery County who face everyday emotional difficulties or physical hardships. Our many innovative social service programs make a positive difference in the lives of 12,000 Montgomery County residents each year.

Under the leadership of Executive Director Tim O'Connell, Family Services offers nationally recognized, proven effective programs, such as Meals on Wheels, Parents as Teachers and the Strengthening Families Program 10-14.

In addition, our dedicated staff quickly responds to emerging local needs with targeted programming, such as the Montgomery County Women's Reentry Initiative, Project HEARTH (Helping Elderly Adults Remain in Their Homes) and Project HOPE (HIV/AIDS Outreach Prevention Education). This fast-acting, community-focused approach has generated the respect of local leaders who turn to Family Services as a partner in collaborative efforts.

Whether it's physical, emotional or financial problems, Family Services is here to offer guidance, care and support. Our programs are varied to address different societal needs but there is one significant constant: a commitment to care for each individual with kindness, dignity and compassion regardless of age, race or income.

At Family Services, we envision a strong, caring community of individuals and families meeting the challenges and opportunities of life. By doing this, we in turn enhance the community in which we live and work.
