Our faith-based Mission is driven by a "preferential option for the poor", flows from Catholic Social Teaching, and espouses five core values: Dignity, Justice, Charity, Solidarity, and Excellence.


Each year Catholic Family & Community Services helps more than 36,000 individuals and families in Passaic, Morris and Sussex counties through its clinical, educational and community service and action programs. The agency presently offers special services to emotionally troubled children, adults, aging persons, unmarried parents, residents of urban housing developments and non-English speaking individuals.

In addition the agency has become deeply involved in efforts to effect widespread social change through legislation activities, formation of parish programs and its education and consultation to the community at large. The agency serves all people of all ages on a non-sectarian basis.

Partnership for Social Services Family Center in Franklin, New Jersey meets the multiple needs of people in Sussex County. A firm commitment to provide services to the community is the cornerstone of our philosophy. An unfolding awareness of sensitivity to human needs has guided the work of the Partnership of Social Services Family Center since its inception, and will continue to shape its direction in the future.
