Youth and Family Services

Back to School Fair, August 17, 2017

Family Success Centers (FSC) are community-based, family centered neighborhood gathering places where any resident of Middlesex County can go for support, information, and services—with parent leadership at its center. All services are free and confidential. 
The purpose of the FSC is to enrich the lives of children and adults by making families and neighborhoods stronger.

The goals of the Family Success Center are to promote family well-being, link families to community services, empower and support families, provide culturally sensitive programs and help families identify and build on their strengths.

JRF’s Family Success Center (FSC) adheres to the principles of Family Support practice for the delivery of all services:
