Registered in 1816 as the Ladies Humane Society and chartered by the State of New Hampshire in 1874, we are the oldest community charitable organization in the Greater Seacoast Area. In 1960, we became known as the Family Service Association. FSA is dedicated to serving the ever growing needs of the community, regardless of race, religion, ethnic background, age, gender or sexual orientation. We strive to fulfill the needs of income qualified individuals with food, clothing, and education for healthy living. We provide these services on both an emergency and on-going basis respecting the dignity of each individual. We offer a helping hand, not just a handout.
