Family Service, Inc.

On Christmas Eve, 1854, a group of prominent citizens from the City of Lawrence, MA, gathered to discuss the formation of a relief society to meet the needs of poor immigrants who had arrived to work in the city’s mill industry. On that night the Provident Association was formed, later called the Lawrence City Mission and known today as Family Service, Inc.

Throughout its history, Family Service has grown and changed to meet the needs of its community. As an organization committed to strengthening individuals and families, Family Service has played a central role in the events that have shaped their community, from the Bread & Roses Strike of 1912, to the Malden Mills Fire in 1996, to the devastating flood of 2006. In its recent history, Family Service has evolved from a small mental health clinic with seven staff (c.1985) to a large and dynamic organization with a staff of 40.

Mission:
Family Service’s mission is help people help themselves by building their skills, increasing their knowledge, and providing them with opportunities to live positive and productive lives.

Vision:
Family Service envisions a future where all individuals in their community are able to create and sustain emotional and wellbeing for themselves, their families, peers and colleagues.

Values:
They believe the positive potential in every person, (clients, employees and volunteers) should be recognized and nurtured so that every person has the ability to succeed personally and professionally.
