Supporting Seniors

I never met a person in my life who was more helpful.
Living alone and almost penniless, Camden County resident, Helen, had given up. The 68 year old had recently lost her mother and at the same time, lost her will to live. She stopped opening mail, visiting doctors, and communicating with the outside world. She was on the verge of homelessness when Center For Family Services’ SAFE (Services to Assist Families and the Elderly) program stepped in.
 

A Second Chance

If it wasn't for this program, I don't know where I'd be
Scott’s life was put on hold the moment he became homeless. For two years he remained unemployed; living in motels and his car. He was unable to maintain a full time job because of his unstable living situation and he lost touch with his children because he didn’t have a safe place for them to call home.
 

Counseling & Behavioral Health Services

With the vast number of programs we provide for individuals and families, we are able to integrate services to more holistically treat the individual, not just the specific symptoms. Our goal is to provide the foundation for a child, an individual, or a family to develop and follow their own best path to a safe, healthy, and self-sufficient future. 

Counseling, Community, and School Based

Center For Family Services Counseling, Community and School Based Services provides a variety of services ranging from counseling and hotlines to senior services and bullying prevention programs. Through these programs we are able to reach more individuals, in different environments with a special emphasis on keeping children safe.
