To serve individuals, families and communities through holistic programs that equip them to meet present and future life challenges.
We assist all persons, regardless of age, race, religion, socio-economic level or disability. We are especially committed to individuals/families who are most in need and vulnerable, who have limited resources and are unable, or do not know how, to find help.
Family and Community Services has a set of core values that is the foundation and guide for our work with vulnerable and oppressed individuals and families.
Each individual is created in the image of God which underscores his/her dignity and self-worth and preserves the right to self-determination.
The family, as a social institution, is the most important human resource.
