About FCS Monmouth:
“With 109 years of history, Family & Children’s Service (FCS) is the oldest, private nonprofit social service agency in Monmouth County and a leading volunteer organization. We provide compassionate care, intervention and education to support people at the most challenging times in their lives. We do this by managing the finances of people at risk of homelessness, including those with physical and cognitive disabilities and mental illness; protecting vulnerable adults from neglect, abuse and exploitation; providing health and respite care to frail and elderly individuals and their families; and offering long-term care planning and Medicare counseling for people as they age. We also promote childhood well being through our school-based volunteer-led initiatives. Our programs include: Adult Protective Services, Jersey Assistance for Community Caregivers (JACC), Healthy Buddies, Home Care Services, Homecare Grant Assistance, Medicare Application Assistance Program (MAAP), Operation Sleighbells, Reading Buddies, Representative Payee, the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), Statewide Respite Care, the State Health Insurance Program (SHIP) and Telephone Reassurance. All our programs and services are provided regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, ethnicity, language spoken or physical or mental ability. And while FCS partners with many organizations and government agencies, in many cases, we are the sole county-designated provider of services and the last hope for individuals, families and seniors in crisis.”
