Family Service brings programs to the Chester County community that serve families, individuals, people living with HIV/AIDS, young adults, retired and senior adults, and many others in need of personal support during difficult times in life.
In the early 1990s, Family Service began a partnership with the West Chester Exchange Club to establish a child abuse prevention program based on the National Exchange Club Foundation’s model of in-home, parent mentoring. Known as our Exchange Club Family Center, we help 25 to 30 families across Chester County each year to strengthen their homes, protect their children, meet their basic needs, and improve their relationships.
