Family & Children’s Service strengthens, protects and preserves the dignity and independence of people in need.

Who We Are:

Founded in 1909, Family & Children’s Service (FCS) is Monmouth County’s oldest private nonprofit social service agency. We offer diverse programs and services that address homelessness; neglect, abuse or exploitation; health and respite care; financial instability due to physical, developmental or mental disabilities; childhood literacy and obesity; and long-term care planning.

They include:

  • Adult Protective Services
  • Home Care Grant Assistance
  • Home Care Services
  • Jersey Assistance for Community Caregiving (JACC)
  • Medicare Counseling
  • Operation Sleighbells
  • Outreach, Awareness & Resources for Seniors (OARS)
  • Reading Buddies
  • Representative Payee
  • Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)
  • State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP)
  • Statewide Respite Care
  • Telephone Reassurance Program

 

All of our programs and services are provided regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, ethnicity, language spoken or physical or mental ability.

While FCS partners with many organizations and government agencies, in many cases, we are the sole county-designated provider of these services and the last hope for individuals, families and seniors in crisis.
