Family Preservation Service's (FPS) mission is to ensure the provision of accessible, effective, high quality community-based counseling and social services as an alternative to traditional institutional care. FPS is dedicated to ensuring that all clients have access to professional community-based care, proven treatment methods and comprehensive service planning. FPS offers a wide variety of programs across the country, and all share a primary commitment to provide care that builds upon clients' strengths and responds to their concerns.

Our primary services are varied, and we are continually creating new programs in response to identified needs in a particular area. The common thread is that we provide counseling and support services in home- and community-based settings and we emphasize the strengths and uniqueness of each youth and family. We do not own or operate any hospitals, residential treatment centers or group homes. All services are offered by trained therapists and paraprofessionals under the direct supervision of licensed clinicians.
