Mission Statement

TO PROVIDE PEER SUPPORT, EDUCATION AND ADVOCACY FOR PARENTS AND CARE GIVERS OF CHILDREN WITH SERIOUS EMOTIONAL, BEHAVIORAL AND METAL HEALTH

Description

Family Support Organization of Essex County is a family-centered, family-driven nonprofit organization that provides peer support, education and advocacy for parents of children who have emotional, behavioral, mental health, substance use, intellectual and developmental challenges.

Our goal is to empower parents and caregivers to take control of their lives by building on their strengths and supporting them as needed. We work with other agencies to strengthen families in order to keep youth safe and healthy in their homes and communities.

We hire parents of children with these challenges who are uniquely able to provide one-to-one peer support to parents in similar situations. We also offer monthly workshops and weekly support groups to aid families. Our goal is to empower families to take control of their lives by building on their strengths and supporting them as needed.

We encourage public and private agencies to work with us and with each other to strengthen families with the goal of keeping children safe and healthy in their homes and communities.
