Family Services of Montgomery County
Strengthening children, seniors and families since 1900


Since 1900, Family Services has been caring for children, seniors and families in Montgomery County who face everyday emotional difficulties or physical hardships. For over 115 years, Family Services has responded to existing and emerging local needs with research-based programming designed to strengthen families and create safer communities. While the nonprofit’s programs are varied to address different community needs, the mission is simple: Family Services is committed to improving the lives of people in Montgomery County.

Family Services offers a number of programs for children, seniors and families through its Pottstown Office, located at 1976 East High Street.

The Pottstown Family Center serves area families with support programs and services that help them learn, grow and achieve self-sufficiency. Parents as Teachers (PAT) is a home visiting program that assists parents in understanding their child’s development and encourages the use of activities that promote healthy growth in language, cognition, motor, and social-emotional skills.

Through the Parent Café program, parents and caregivers participate in table discussions where they share experiences, parenting tips, and ways to strengthen their families. The Family Center also plays an important role in Pottstown School District’s Pottstown Early Action for Kindergarten Readiness (PEAK) initiative by providing resources to families that help them fulfill their roles as their child’s first teachers.

In addition to strengthening families in Montgomery County, Family Services also helps area seniors through programs designed to keep them safe and independent in their own homes.

Meals on Wheels has provided food, friendship and a brief safety check to frail, homebound elderly in Western Montgomery County since 1971. Each weekday, volunteers pack and deliver a hot lunch and cold supper to an average of 160 individuals in Pottstown, Royersford and the Lower Perkiomen Valley. These caring volunteers greet each client with a smile, kind conversation and a brief safety check. For many clients, this program is often their only contact with the outside world.

Project HEARTH (Helping Elderly Adults Remain in Their Homes) links frail elderly adults who are healthy enough to live in their own homes with special support services that help them to remain independent. These services include professional in-home counseling; errand and transportation service; friendly visiting; telephone reassurance; and handyman service for minor repairs.

Through these and many other innovative social service programs, Family Services is able to make a positive difference in the lives of 13,000 Montgomery County residents each year.
