Family Service Association of Bucks County was established in 1953. The concept was developed by a small group of local residents, who met to address the increased need for a social service agency that could strengthen families and individuals, by responding to unmet needs – particularly in the area of mental health.
Since then, the Langhorne-based non-profit organization has grown exponentially, in size and scope of programs offered, including treatment of those struggling with mental health and substance use concerns, preparation of children and adolescents for the future, support and enhancement of life for those with HIV/AIDS, suicide prevention, and much more. Further, Family Service owns and operates the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter, and manages the Bucks County Housing Link Helpline, which assists families and individuals in finding permanent housing.
The agency runs a full-service food and pet pantry, which is utilized by thousands annually. It also coordinates several community-focused charitable initiatives, including a back-to-school drive for school supplies, a coat drive and a holiday toy shop, all of which support local families in need.
Family Service provides individualized, ongoing innovative assistance and treatment to approximately 40,000 Bucks County residents each year. These programs and services have given clients the opportunity to once again function as healthy, happy, and successful citizens, who are able to reach their full potential.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Family Service saw a dramatic increase in the need for its programs and responded immediately. When the community needs them most, Family Service is there, fulfilling its mission to listen, care, and help. Every day.
