October is here!
The Autumnal Equinox has arrived. Cool damp nights have brought creepy crawlers closer to the warmth of your doors and windows seeking refuge from the inevitability of winter. Falls storms, winds, and gloom have arrived just in time for Halloween. The climate is just right for the spookiest of the twelve months! That said we hope everyone has a safe Halloween this year!

What Family Service Association Offers
Through this long stretch of the COVID-19 pandemic, Family Service Association is here to help. We are ready to support our most vulnerable community members who need food, personal care items, and financial assistance. In addition, we serve as the Coordination Center for Adirondack Wellness Connections; an online platform that connects health care providers and community based organizations in a way that helps continue the care and support our most vulnerable population needs. Whether it is helping someone connect to a source for emergency assistance or help find a care provider, Adirondack Wellness Connections is there to serve.
A Special Thanks!
A personal shout out for Fresh Food Collective, Victory Garden, and Master Gardener Shellie for providing our community members with fresh local produce this summer.
Throughout this month we will operate as we have been. All financial, food, or personal care item assistance requests must be done over the phone. If anyone needs food, just give us a call. We can put a box of food together and place it on our distribution table at the rear of our building at a convenient time to pick-up. This is so we can maintain proper social distancing. We also require visitors to wear masks.
We understand this has been a trying time for all of us. Thank you for your cooperation with our guidelines.
Please give us a call if you are in need. Our number is (518) 793-0797.
