Family Service Rochester is celebrating 50 years!

Family Service Rochester is kicking off a year-long celebration of our 50th Anniversary. In 1963, a comprehensive study by the Citizen's Steering Committee of the United Fund (currently known as United Way of Olmsted County) identified a need for affordable counseling services. It resulted in founding the founding of Family Consultation Center in 1965. After mergers with Consumer Credit Counseling and Sunrise Youth and Family Counseling in 1991 the organization became Family Service Rochester. We are proud to celebrate 50 years partnering with families to navigate life's journeys.

May is Supervised Visitation Month

During the month of May we recognize the importance of giving children access to relationships with both their parents. At the Family Access Center we provide supervised parenting times, monitored parenting times and safe exchanges. The Family Access Center is in need of volunteers (to monitor visits), financial support and new or gently used toys.
