Family Tree Healthcare is a multi-faceted social services company whose guiding mission is to create programs in underserved populations of Color which promote healthy communities and families. FTHC takes the holistic approach (a healing philosophy that views a patient as a whole person, not just a disease or a collection of symptoms) and extends it to working with communities--a philosophy that views a community as a whole, not just a community at risk or collection of problems, but one that has leaders, has assets and has value to "heal itself."
Family Tree Healthcare was founded in 2003. Family Tree Healthcare is a labor of love made possible, and inspired by the example set by the late Lillie Hines Marbley.... Family Tree Healthcare began as Family Tree Parenting Services in 2003, a non-profit Arizona based company made up of a culturally diverse staff and board of directors with more than 85 joint years of community service in working with families. Our years of experience come from various fields including social work, education, medicine, information management and administration.
