Supporting People During Challenging Times
Adult Protective Services investigates reports of suspected abuse, neglect and/or exploitation of vulnerable adults residing in the community in Monmouth and Middlesex Counties.
Our Mission to provide compassionate care begins with each of us and extends to all people, which is why we provide an array of programs and services to help.
FCS provides certified home health aides (CHHAs) and supportive care aides to seniors and persons with disabilities with services that allow them to continue living safely at home with dignity.
Our RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program) Healthy Buddies/Reading Buddies programs pair specially trained volunteers with at-risk elementary school children to advance early reader’s literacy skills and promote healthy behaviors.
The State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) offers free help to New Jersey Medicare beneficiaries who have problems with, or questions about, their health insurance coverage.
Operation Sleighbells provides toys, books, clothing and infant necessities to thousands of children and their families who are facing financial hardship during the holiday season.
The application is closed for 2020. Thank you!
Our Representative Payee program assists with the finances of adults who are unable to manage a budget due to physical or mental health limitations, or developmental disabilities.
With 110 years of history, Family & Children’s Service (FCS) is the oldest, private nonprofit social service agency in Monmouth County and a leading volunteer organization. We provide compassionate care, intervention and education to support people at the most challenging times in their lives. We do this by managing the finances of people at risk of homelessness, including those with physical and cognitive disabilities and mental illness; protecting vulnerable adults in the community from neglect, abuse and exploitation; providing health and respite care to frail and elderly individuals and their families; and offering long-term care planning and Medicare counseling for people as they age. We also promote childhood literacy and well-being through our school-based, volunteer-led initiatives.
“I am still a work in progress,” Parelee says. “But I am learning to put one foot in front of the other and keep walking.”
Operation Sleighbells brought joy to the faces of more than 1,500 area children, and peace of mind to parents like Jean.
