About Us

Who We Are

Family Service of Champaign County is a private, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization. Founded in 1911, we are the oldest private social service agency in Champaign County and have provided continuous service to families and individuals for more than 100 years. Our mission is supporting people across the generations by providing quality human services.

Programs and Services

  • Senior Resource Center: Offers “one number to call” for seniors and their families to get information about all services available in our area.  Provides comprehensive services to enable seniors to remain in their own homes, including Senior Counseling and Advocacy, Caregiver Support Services, HomeCare, Meals on Wheels and Senior Transportation.
  • Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (R.S.V.P. ): Enables and supports seniors to provide volunteer service to schools, medical clinics, libraries and other non-profit organizations.
  • The Self-Help Center: Provides information and referral to a wide variety of mutual support groups and assists in the development and maintenance of support groups.
  • Counseling: Provides individual, couple and family therapy on a sliding fee scale.
  • Children First: Educates divorcing parents on the impact of divorce on children and helps them develop resources and new ways to relate to each other and their children.
  • Illinois Volunteer Money Management Program: Paying bills, balancing a check book, or reading through mail can become challenging for many reasons. Volunteer Money Management can help a senior manage his/her financial tasks so the individual can remain self-sufficient in his/her own home.
