Our Story

Springboard Community Services

Family & Children's Services is now Springboard Community Services

Across the centuries, Springboard Community Services, formerly Family and Children’s Services, has woven common threads of hope and transformation into the communities we serve.

Our goal is to provide mental healthcare to EVERYONE in need.

Our commitment to transforming lives started long ago, in 1849, we made a promise.  To bring positive momentum to families, individuals, and those in need – even in the most difficult of times.  We build bridges to hope for individuals and families in response to instances of trauma, psychological distress, financial strain, and every hardship in between.  But confusion surrounding our name and identity has historically kept some of our efforts in the shadows.
