Family Service of the Piedmont
Family Service of the Piedmont (FSP) serves more than 19,000 local children and adults each year, addressing issues of domestic violence, child abuse, mental health, and financial stability. The regional organization was formed in 1999 when two smaller groups – Family Service of High Point and Family & Children’s Service of Greater Greensboro – merged to increase their reach. FSP’s work relies heavily on donations and volunteers from Greensboro, High Point, and the surrounding communities. Its goal is simple – to build safe and healthy families in the Triad.
Our Greensboro predecessor, Family & Children’s Service of Greater Greensboro, resulted from a study by the Junior League of Greensboro, and the Council of Social Agencies. Largely through the League’s efforts, the Greensboro Community and War Chest, now the United Way of Greater Greensboro, approved a proposal establishing the Family Services Agency on October 28, 1945. Today, we serve Greensboro residents at our Families First Center on Washington Street, our Clara House emergency shelter, and four other locations across the Triad.
