We’re honored to once again collaborate with Family and Children’s Service (FCS), the oldest nonprofit social service agency in Monmouth County. Last year, MHAMC donated 106 bags of clothing and resources to seniors. The generosity of donors, including Community Solutions Alliance, Shrewsbury Borough School District, Family and Children’s Service, and the No Stigma Network, played a critical role in our ability to provide compassionate care and support.
