Where We Were

Since 1956, Family Service Agency has been providing counseling and other essential services to DeKalb County. We are among the oldest private, nonprofit organizations in the area, and our programs have grown and adapted to changing community needs over the past half-century.

Where We Are

Family Service Agency serves as an "umbrella agency" of five distinct community programs: Children's Advocacy Center, School-Based & Youth Programming, Center for Counseling, Senior Services, and Community Action Program. We organize the efforts of many local agencies to provide the best care possible to our community.
