The habit of giving only enhances the desire to give. – Walt Whitman

For over a century, individuals and families throughout Monmouth County have counted on Family & Children’s Service as a compassionate and reliable resource. While many of our programs and services have evolved over the years in response to the ever-changing needs of the communities we serve, our mission to provide compassionate care, intervention and education to support people during challenging times in their lives, has remained unchanged.

Today FCS cares for thousands of vulnerable people through our 14 diverse programs and services, addressing issues of homelessness prevention; the neglect, abuse or exploitation of adults; health and respite care; financial instability due to physical or mental disabilities; and childhood literacy and obesity. We also help seniors navigate the complexities of Medicare and provide volunteers for dozens of non-profit organizations throughout Monmouth County.

Our ability to fulfill our mission and sustain the work our social workers, nurses, home health aides, support staff and volunteers do every day throughout Monmouth County and beyond is reliant on the generous support of organizations, businesses and individuals – like you.
