Family Service is a nonprofit counseling and human service agency that has been rooted in Chester County, Pennsylvania since 1947.
Our mission is to promote the well being of individuals and families and advocate for change.
Our original founders were a group of individuals and social welfare professionals with a mission to support Chester County residents struggling with family life, changing societal norms, shifts in the work place, and other challenges at the end of World War II.
Today, over 73 years later, we are one of Chester County’s most trusted providers of counseling and specialized support programs for families and individuals. We place a special emphasis on serving people of all ages, backgrounds and income levels.
We provide professional counseling to people of all income levels and operate programs to address some of our community’s most pressing issues, including:
- Family support and child abuse prevention
- Mental health (counseling, divorce, etc)
- Financial self-sufficiency
- Access to transportation
- Homelessness and housing insecurity
We also provide our services at a low rate—and in many cases, for free—to any Chester County resident in financial need. We do not require health insurance. We believe in eliminating financial barriers to professional care. We do not turn anyone away. We believe in creating a community where people can enjoy healthy, safe and productive lives. We believe in diversity and inclusivity in all areas of life. We would love to have you part of the Family Service family. If you have questions feel free to reach me at any time.
