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.
