Family and Children’s Resources
Long Branch-based Family and Children’s Resources is Monmouth County’s oldest private nonprofit social service agency.
They offer diverse programs and services that address homelessness; neglect, abuse or exploitation; health and respite care; financial instability due to physical, developmental or mental disabilities; childhood literacy; and long-term care planning. Founded over 114 years ago by a group of Long Branch community leaders whose vision was to better the lives of their neighbors in need and since its inception, FCS has held firm in its dedication to those members of the community, mirroring society’s evolution through continual updating of services and programs. All of the group’s programs and services are provided regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, ethnicity, language spoken or physical or mental ability. While FCS partners with many organizations and government agencies, in many cases, they are the sole county-designated provider of these services and the last hope for individuals, families and seniors in crisis.
