Presbyterian Homes & Family Services and the Family Alliance strengthens individuals and families through care, counseling and education.
Our ministry envisions a compassionate society where the inherent value of every person is recognized, where families are healthy and communities where everyone can prosper.
Presbyterian Homes & Family Services and the Family Alliance offers a variety of programs to strengthen individuals and families through care, counseling and education.
We are a 501 (c) (3) non profit organization that offers programs and services throughout Virginia. Our main Presbyterian Homes Campus location is in Lynchburg, but we also have locations in Fredericksburg, Harrisonburg, Lexington, South Hill, Stuarts Draft and Zuni. Our programs and services wouldn't be possible without the generous support of individuals, churches, foundations and corporations.
Since 1903 when Presbyterian Homes & Family Services was founded, we have been impacting lives. As our society and communities have changed over the years, our program offerings and residential services have transformed to meet the needs of children, adults and families. Today we offer a full continuum of care through our five focus areas:
1. Early Childhood Education
Research shows that early childhood education is critical to preparing children for success in school and life. Our early education programs are helping children thrive today and into tomorrow by developing core competencies as well as confidence.
2. Economic Empowerment
Our programs help people get out of debt, create financial stability, incease self-sufficiency and advance career and educational opportunities.
3. Mental Health Services
Our programs help children, teens and adults overcome emotional, behavioral and psychological challenges while keeping families together. We help those individuals and families who have difficulty accessing mental health services elsewhere get the care that they need.
4. Residential Care
For more than a century we have provided safe and loving homes to children in crisis. Today we offer Therapeutic Foster Care to children with an emotional or behavioral condition that requires specialized care and a loving home. We created our first homes for adults in 1967 and today more than 70 adults call our home their home, leading full and productive lives.
5. Safe & Healthy Living
Our programs empower families to become healthy and successful. Parents learn necessary skills to prevent child abuse and neglect, to be happy and more self-sufficient and to build a bright future.
We now offer a broad range of programs and are able to serve more families than ever. In turn, we have received exceptional service ratings from clients and increasing support from donors and volunteers.
