Welcome, and thank you for visiting the website for Family Service Agency in Phoenix, Arizona.
Family Service Agency was founded in 1902 by Maie Bartlett Heard, wife of Dwight Bancroft Heard, founder of the Heard Museum. We have the distinction of being the oldest locally founded not-for-profit social service agency in the State of Arizona.
We are proud of our heritage and committed to serving as a faithful steward of Family Service Agency to further the legacy that our founders established and to continue supporting the mission to provide services that advocate for, strengthen and preserve the individual and the family.
We currently provide services for those needing behavioral health outpatient treatment; substance abuse outpatient treatment; adoption services (for both those wishing to adopt and those birth mothers seeking to relinquish their newborn for adoption); re-entry into the community from incarceration; and many others. Please click on the subject that interests you most and you will find more detailed information.
We receive funding from a variety of sources in support of our service delivery, such as: Valley of the Sun United Way; the Arizona Department of Economic Security, Administration for Children, Youth and Families; Magellan Health Services of Arizona; and many other valuable partnerships.
In 1911 we became a founding member of The Alliance for Children and Families (formerly Family Service America) and continue to be in membership today. We also have the honor of serving on the national board of directors of that not-for-profit organization.
Hopefully you will find the information on our website helpful and will use it as a portal to assist you with your needs.
