Family Support Services

Family Support Services (F.S.S.) is a community-based in home service program designed to help strengthen families in their homes, within their own neighborhoods, to help them meet the basic needs of their children and prevent child maltreatment.

We serve families within the context of their own family rules, traditions, history and culture. The community-based in home service program is designed to help strengthen families through compassion and respect. Service Specialists share with the community the responsibility of keeping children and youth safe.
