Welcome To Family Service Association
of Howard County
Family. Thatís the first word in the name of our organization, Family Service Association, and it's what we're all about. We're an umbrella agency that provides a variety of programs, from teaching new parents proper childcare skills to helping families get out of debt, from doing chores for the elderly and/or handicapped to assisting in the fight against tobacco use, from providing shelter for abused women and children to preventing child abuse in the first place. Sooner or later, every family goes through a stormy time. We're here to build strong families so they'll be able to cope with the storms of life. When the dark clouds roll in, don't forget your umbrella: Family Service Association.
