Family Centers' mission is to empower children, adults, families and communities to realize their potential. Our NAEYC accredited preschools, school-based social work, parental education and adolescent counseling services, give families the resources they need to ensure their children have the bright beginnings they deserve. A comprehensive network of counseling and support services is also instrumental in helping families in crisis work toward a successful resolution. Vocational training, housing resources, counseling and self sufficiency programs also help low-income people and those with long-term mental illness realize their dreams of living independently. Meanwhile, our senior outreach programs encourage lifelong learning, socialization and support.
Family Centers is a private, non-profit organization offering education and human services to children, adults and families living in Lower Fairfield County.
More than 3,000 professionals and trained volunteers work together to provide a wide range of responsive, innovative programs
We'll work with your schedule.
