Family & Community Services, Inc. is one of the largest nonprofit agencies in Northeast Ohio. F&CS has spent the past 75 years helping individuals of all ages; from providing life’s basic needs - food, clothing and shelter - to counseling and mentoring services. We are able to carry out our mission because of the network of volunteers and support from the community.
Last year we assisted over 100,000 people. Because of the generosity and commitment of our faithful supporters, we provided food for the hungry, clothes for those in need, shelter for the homeless, counseling for individuals and families, guidance for the young and encouragement for the downtrodden. Every day our 3,500 dedicated volunteers make it possible to respond to the increasing number of individuals and families who need us.
At F&CS, we’re never content to sit still. We provide more than 71 programs, in 21 counties and in two states - Ohio and Michigan. Simply put, where there’s a need, we look for a way to meet it.
