Welcome to Family Service Agency

For people struggling to face life’s challenges, a helping hand and some practical encouragement can make the difference between failure and success. Facing these challenges and crises can help us recognize our inner strengths.

Family Service Agency of the Central Coast believes in the power and potential of people of all ages and backgrounds to discover their own creative solutions. Our professional staff and volunteers provide the resources, support, and counseling services essential to healthy families and communities. Since 1957 we have been providing counseling, suicide prevention, and supportive services to those in Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito Counties. We welcome people of diverse cultures, genders, sexual orientations, ages, faiths, socio-economic backgrounds, and abilities as clients, volunteers, and staff members.

Our financial support comes from client fees, public contracts, and donations through our Friends, the United Way, foundations, and our Daisy Auxiliary.

We hope these pages will help you learn more about our programs and we invite you to take advantage of our services as a client or to get involved as a volunteer.
