Programs & Services

F&CS is a community-based organization that has been operating for 133 years. Our mission is to strengthen the life skills of families, children, and individuals of all ages. This is accomplished through a range of programs offered directly or in collaboration with other organizations in the towns of Charlestown, Chelsea, East Boston, Lynn, Revere, Winthrop, and surrounding communities.

F&CS offers parenting enrichment and family support, both during home visiting and group services using evidence-based models that include child developmental screenings and referrals. Case management and group classes promote healthy parenting using the nationally-recognized curriculum in English, Spanish and Khmer. Youth Services include asset-building and violence prevention programs in age-appropriate settings.
