Family Service Rochester was founded in 1965 as a nonprofit organization with a staff of three and the mission to support and enhance the dignity and quality of life for individuals and families in our community.
In 1990, Sunrise Youth and Family Counseling joined with Family Counseling and Home Services to form Family Service Rochester.
For the past 15 years, Family Service Rochester has sharpened its focus to working with families with serious child welfare and/or family violence concerns. Major service expansions have been in the areas of child maltreatment, child welfare, children’s mental health, domestic violence and providing our services to ethnically diverse populations in our community.
Today the agency provides more than 30 programs to meet ever-changing community needs. Our staff of over 85 provides a wide range of human services that educate, strengthen, support, protect and empower individuals and families in our community.
