Richard Stagliano, the president and CEO of Center For Family Services, and Jeanne Warnock, the president and CEO for Family Intervention Service (FIS), announce the coming together of two of the most accomplished and respected family-serving organizations in New Jersey. On January 1, FIS became a division of Center For Family Services, with Stagliano serving as the leader of the combined organization and Warnock serving as his emeritus partner.
“Our partnership will strengthen our effectiveness, build our capacity, spread best practices, and expand our reach,” said Stagliano.
“We are celebrating our coming together with Center For Family Services because of our mutual commitment to offering children and families their greatest chance for a good life,” said Warnock.
The combined agency will serve individuals, children and families throughout the state, including Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Essex, Gloucester, Morris, Passaic, Ocean, Salem and Sussex counties. The Center For Family Services currently serves nearly 70,000 children and family members in southern New Jersey and FIS serves nearly 15,000 children and family members in the northern part of the state.
The combined service offerings include: addiction and recovery, counseling and behavioral health, family preservation, support and prevention, adoption counseling, early childhood education, juvenile justice and mental health crisis response, victim and trauma recovery, safe housing and workforce development.
The common mission is to support and empower individuals, families, and communities to achieve a better life through vision, hope and strength. The vision is that all people lead capable, responsible, fulfilled lives in strong families and healthy communities.
