Our mission of strengthening individuals, families and communities is still as relevant today as it was back in 1953 when we first opened our doors. We remain true to our roots and yet we continue to meet the ever changing needs of our clients and our community. In 1953, Levittown was booming and families were leaving familiar territory to work at US Steel, to start a new life in this suburban community. Families faced stressful situations that were new to them. Back then, couples came to us mostly for marriage counseling or for help with raising their children. We had two offices, five staff and our agency was totally supported by the Community Fund (later known as the United Way). Our budget was $21,000. Today the nearly 6,000 people we help each year come from all walks of life, ages, cultures, and financial backgrounds. They come from families headed by married couples or single parents. They are from multi-generational households. They are isolated seniors, grandparents raising grandchildren, new immigrants, individuals with HIV/AIDS, and individuals with serious mental illness and/or substance abuse disorders. Our programs have also changed and expanded. We have over 120 staff members and a budget of over $5 million. In addition to traditional family counseling, people also come to us for help with illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression disorder, suicidal ideation, drug abuse, just to name a few.
