Family Service League is pleased to announce it has received a $3,500 grant from the Montclair Foundation of Montclair, NJ to support their Family Counseling Program.  These funds will enable Family Service League to provide counseling to children exposed to family violence and their families.

Founded in Montclair in 1881, the mission of Family Service League has remained consistent to support and strengthen families in need in Montclair and surrounding communities through counseling, education, and social services. The programs include the Family Counseling Program and The Sexual Family Violence Intervention and Prevention Center (SAVE), which is New Jersey’s designated Rape Care Center for Essex County. For many who are financially strained, services are provided on a sliding scale basis to eliminate barriers to service. More than 95 percent of family counseling clients qualify for reduced rates based upon their income.

“The agency has seen an increase in the number of children exposed to violence in their homes.  A child’s involvement and/or exposure to family violence can have negative consequences emotionally and developmentally if not addressed. With the support of the Montclair Foundation, we will be able to continue to provide counseling to these children and their families who may not have had access to the help they need due to the family’s financial constraints” stated Christine Ferro-Saxon, Family Service League’s Executive Director.
