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 Lynn, Revere, Chelsea, East Boston 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 nationally-recognized curriculum in English, Spanish and Khmer. Youth Services include asset-building and violence prevention programs in age appropriate settings.

  • Early Childhood Programs at our Family Resource Center to encourage early literacy and healthy child development.

  • Parent Education & Family Support Programs to teach skills, share resources and foster connections in our community.

  • Home Visiting Services: Programs that match parents with trained professionals who visit families’ homes to provide support during pregnancy and through the child’s early years of life.

  • Youth and Young Adult Opportunities: Teen Violence Prevention & Asset Building Programs to build resiliency and increase opportunities for youth.

  • Emergency Financial Assistance for emergency assistance to families and individuals living in Lynn, Lynnfield, Nahant, Saugus and Swampscott.

  • Family Alliance is a Family Stabilization Team which consists of licensed clinicians and case managers who work with families that are currently involved with the Department of Children and Families.

   Our services touch the lives of families through generations to help them to achieve their fullest potential, and increase their capacity to thrive and succeed in life.
