Nationally recognized nonprofit Family Service League (FSL) said Tuesday it is relocating from Montclair to a new space in Bloomfield.
The new office will allow the foundation to grow its staff as it develops new programs and expands offerings.
“Since Family Service League was formed in 1881, we have served as a cornerstone of the Montclair community, as well as surrounding Essex County communities. We continue to serve our communities, and in 2019 alone, we provided a total of 3,939 counseling sessions to individuals, couples and families in need of help,” said Larry Slous, president of Family Service League’s board of trustees. “Although we are sad to leave Montclair, our new headquarters will better serve the current needs of all of our communities.”
The new modern space will comfortably house the organization’s employees with room to add additional counseling rooms. The space will also increase capacity to see clients and will provide improved facilities for meetings and training.
“Our new location will be easily accessible, with direct access to public transportation. Our location directly across from Bloomfield College will allow us to better serve students,” said Christine Ferro-Saxon, executive director of Family Service League. “As a nonprofit organization, it was important to invest in a space that helps our staff thrive as they serve the public. We are looking forward to welcoming the Essex County community into our new home.”
Family Service League has remained true to its mission of supporting and strengthening those in need through counseling, education and social services. The organization focuses on working with families, couples and individuals to encourage them to consider and implement solutions that improve their emotional lives and relationships with others. No one is denied treatment at Family Service League as a result of financial reasons.
