Family Matters Marks Its 130th
Family Matters, formerly Family and Child Services, celebrated its 130th anniversary May 3 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. It is the city's oldest and largest private social-services agency that provides vital and crisis care to the city's neediest residents. Programs include foster care, adoption services, mental health support and youth development. The organization operates the Washington Post's Send-a-Kid-to-Camp program and offers senior services, foster care, adoptions, teen mother assistance and financial rehabilitation guidance.
