Greetings to November!
A month we all love and fear as winter nears around the corner. However, Thanksgiving will warm our hearts as we celebrate all the abundance this year has had to offer. Although we know 2020 has been a year of strife and financial burden for many, there has been an abundance of love and support for our community members struggling with the impacts of COVID-19. Where did that abundance of support come from? The answer is you, and the larger community we all are apart of. That is something to celebrate!
Adopt A Family Update
Our Adopt A Family program and waiting list are full! Our elves are hard at work making sure some of our families have a safe and wholesome holiday season. However, long lists require more helpers! So, if you are looking to help a family out or give a gift this holiday, reach out to us to see how you can make a difference!

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.
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 outside 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.
