Welcome to Family

Since 1970, FAMILY has been an anchor for area residents- a place where people are respectful and caring, and where the search for solutions is creative and tireless. FAMILY's shelters, emergency food pantries, court advocates, counseling and case management services, hotlines, and child care supports all work together to help people achieve the changes they seek.

Our services are, with few exceptions, free of charge and confidential

For 40 years, FAMILY has been a leader locally and in New York State, developing programming and supports for people in need.

We welcome you to FAMILY of Woodstock on the Web. We hope our website gives you an idea about who we are and what we do. But if you can, please stop into one of our Walk In Centers in Ellenville, New Paltz or Woodstock to see for yourself how FAMILY helps in your community.

FAMILY is....

  • a network of paid staff and volunteers who share a commitment to helping people gain the skills and support they need to move forward;

  • a broad array of services under one umbrella;

  • a place where people in need can come to find their own strengths and the community's best resources.
