History of FIS

Family Intervention Services was founded in 1981 by Jeanne M. Warnock, LCSW, with the goal to stabilize and strengthen families.

Services are rooted in the essential work to prevent the unnecessary removal of children from their home, return children from out of home placement and assist families in developing the tools and skills for self-determination and success.  FIS first opend its doors with two staff serving five families in Morristown, NJ. Since that time, countless children and families have received help and support thanks to services provided by Family Intervention Services. 

Family Intervention Services joined forces with Center For Family Services on January 1, 2020. Jeanne Warnock currently serves as President/CEO Emeritus of FIS, A Division of Center For Family Services.
