Mission Statement

Family Service Association mission is "to to strengthen Individuals and families" .

Description

Incorporated on March 16, 1909, Family Service Association was originally known as The Organized Charities of Atlantic City, with the mission " to provide tangible relief for individuals and families in need and to serve as a clearing house for agencies that served people in need". In 1919, the name of the agency was changed to The Atlantic County Welfare Board. It was felt that this name was more appropriate for an agency whose objective was "the rehabilitation of families who were or might become dependent and the removal of preventable cases of misery and destitution". The goal of the agency was: well-bodies, educated minds, cemented home ties, proper care of those who could not care for themselves, work for the idle, happiness, prosperity and justice for all.
