SMART staff has been a big help with my education in so many ways that now I am on track to graduate to go to a four year college.

I am proud of what SMART FAMILY SERVICES is doing to make our community a better place. It has been a pleasure to work with SMART staff and I am honored to dedicate my time to volunteer.              




We understand that people go through life challenges and we want to intervene in the lives of children who have been abused and neglected, involved in the juvenile justice system, facing instability, homelessness, being unemployed and suffering from many other hardships. We dedicate our lives to guide children as they move through the different stages of development. Our goal is to meet the needs of each child and family, teach them to be self-sufficient and independent, and promote a safe and healthy living environment.

why we love doing what we do

Aging out of the foster system with no income or housing isn't seasonal. This happens daily, which is why we plan to continue to have a year-round transitional housing program for children and families who age out of the foster care system.

Locally,SMART FAMILY SERVICES is a vocal advocate for everyone: children and families, juvenile delinquents, struggling adults and seniors, veterans reintegrating back into society, and anyone with mental and/or physical disabilities.

Our Outreach team would like your help. Find out how you can contribute to the future of someone in need through donations of money and time.
