Family Service Centers

Providing wrap-around services to help strengthen families.

Family Service Centers are the place where families meet to get information, share ideas, set goals, and make their goals happen. Available to all families residing in Montgomery County, Jefferson County, and Lowndes County, the centers offer a unique and exciting place for positive change. Many opportunities are available for you and your family through the centers. Because the centers are linked with many organizations and agencies in your area, you can be assured of being connected with as many services as you need. This program makes it easier for you to find answers to your family questions and receive the help you are looking for. In fact, we can bring some of the services right to your door!
