Our History

Celebrating 140 Years of Bringing Health & Hope into the Home

Since our founding in 1877, Family Lifeline has flourished for more than a century because we are responsive to the changing needs of those we serve. Our name throughout the years has reflected this evolution – The City Mission (1877), Associated Charities (1905), Family Service Society (1928), Family & Children’s Services (1963) and today, Family Lifeline (2001). As you trace our history below, you’ll discover a vision that is as vibrant today as it was when we were first founded. We remain uniquely poised to strengthen the lives of families in the home, two generations at a time.
